News has been spreading on the internet over the past week of an upcoming casting announcement for the film, and this appears to be it.
It would make a lot of sense since Cumberbatch recently dropped out of Guillermo del Toro's ("Pacific Rim") upcoming Gothic horror movie "Crimson Peak" for no particular reason.
If given the option, and weighting the possibility of propelling one's career, I would jump horror ship for a chance to be apart of this massive franchise.
As we all know Cumberbatch just recently starred in director J.J. Abrams "Star Trek Into Darkness" as the villainous Khan. Could we be seeing him as another villain (my favorite roles of his) in this?
