Re: The Current War

Fascinating. It'll be interesting to see who they'll cast as Edison's opponent Westinghouse.
But... "no director currently on board"... let's hope this project doesn't end up in production hell...

Re: The Current War

OOoh, sounds like he's getting to play a rather unsympathtic role too.  I bet he'll enjoy that.

Re: The Current War

Can't wait to see this. And can't wait to see who'll be his adversary. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Of course, Benedict will play an American again. Makes you wonder... aren't there any American actors who could play this role...? I'm sure of course that Benedict will be as wonderful as ever.

Re: The Current War

Oooh how interesting!

I've always had an interest in this for some weird reason. I'd love to see Ben in it!

Hmm, any suggestions which American actor could fit into this role?
I think there ist that "this Cumberbatch bloke is brilliant in playing geniuses" thing again.

Re: The Current War

Well, in fairness, it's not all that easy to portray genius convincingly, and Edison was certainly a fascinatingly flawed individual.  (And with it being a Weinstein production, it sounds like a role with serious Oscar potential.)

Re: The Current War

Yes! Benedict + Jake (loved him in Nightcrawler) + historical drama = a recipe for success. I'm also thinking this means another American accent for Benedict to add to his repertoire. I'm guessing this one will be a Michigan accent (where Edison grewup)?

Re: The Current War

This is good news. So he will probably take a holiday in August and then start working again in September. I am fine with that. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: The Current War

Cool, so it will probably still happen.  I don't like Edison so....,maybe this will be another character from Benedict that isn't that nice.
