Ralph Fiennes, Dev Patel, Ben Kingsley join Wes Anderson's The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar
The film is set to begin production in London soon
It was announced yesterday that Wes Anderson will direct Roald Dahl's classic novel The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar for Netflix, with Benedict Cumberbatch attached to star. Now, the project has added Ralph Fiennes, Dev Patel and Ben Kingsley to star alongside Cumberbatch.
The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar is made up of several short stories, which is a mix of reality and fiction, including tales about how Dahl became a writer. While it remains unknown which stories would be covered in this project, reports have stated that the film would consist of three mini-films similar to the Coen brothers’ The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.
This isn't the first time that Anderson has adapted Dahl to screen. He previously helmed 2009's The Fantastic Mr. Fox, starring George Clooney, Willem Dafoe and Jason Schwartzman.
The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar is set to start filming in London soon.
