Apparently director Doug Limon is trying to cast in his latest film, Everest. That is if Cumberbatch can fit it into his ever growing schedule!
Benedict is wanted to play the roll of mountain climber, George Malloy, after Tim Hardy dropped out. The film is about the story of Malloy and competing climber George Finch trying to ascend the legendary mountain in 1924. This won’t be his first foray into playing a real life person though, after the recently released Fifth Estate, I wonder if he will be up for playing another real life character again?
He isn’t locked into the roll yet and no one has been cast as Finch at the moment, but names included in the line up include Tom Hiddleston, Luke Evans and James McAvoy.
We will keep you posted on more information as it appears!
