Start comparison shopping for flights to London now, Benedict Cumberbatch fans - it looks like that whole rumored production of Hamlet? Not so much a rumor anymore.
In a recent interview with USA Today, the Sherlock star himself confirmed that Hamlet is definitely a go, at some point in the Fall of 2014 in London’s West End. When discussing what his upcoming projects might include, Cumberbatch declared, “I know for certain I'm doing Hamlet sometime in autumn on the London stage.”
“Before that,” he continued, “There are all sorts of film projects flying around, but the one that looks most real at the moment is Lost City of Z with James Gray.”
So there you have it, straight from the horse’s mouth, we can all basically start camping out at the British Airways ticket counter immediately. Not really, obviously, as no firm dates, theater location, other cast members or basically any specifics at all have been determined, but still. It’s actually going to happen!
