Benedict Cumberbatch to star in How to Stop Time

Benedict Cumberbatch is set to star in an adaptation of Matt Haig’s forthcoming novel How to Stop Time.

The novel tells the story of Tom Hazard, a man who may look like an ordinary 41-year-old but, owing to an extremely rare condition, has been alive for centuries. It’s billed as a love story that spans time and continents. How to Stop Time will be a SunnyMarch production with Benedict acting as executive producer.

The novel is out in July and you can pre-order it here.
