Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave is getting better each day. After the addition of Brad Pitt and Paul Dano, another high calibre actor is added to the cast.

That actor is Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock, War Horse, Star Trek 2). Famously known as Sherlock Holmes in the hit BBC series, Cumberbatch will play the role of a plantation owner who buys the lead character, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor, and is won over by his engineering skills.

Cumberbatch is a great addition to the cast which also has Michael Fassbender (Prometheus). The film is slated to begin production by the end of June. The filmmakers are targeting a release in the fall of 2013.
