Benedict Cumberbatch set to star in The Wonderful World of Henry Sugar

Benedict Cumberbatch is apparently working with Wes Anderson on his next film, an adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Wonderful World of Henry Sugar.

The film, which will be released by Netflix, follows an idle playboy gambler who steals a book that describes how the power to see without sight can be attained, using special yoga training that concentrates the conscious mind. 

According to Baz Bamigboye, Cumberbatch will play Sugar who uses his new power to win at cards at top casinos around the world.

The film is expected to shoot in and around London.
