New Project: How To Stop Time

Benedict will act and co-produce this upcoming project:

I love how he focusses on contemporary English literature while at the same time doing something so profoundly American like Doctor Strange. Amazing man.

I think it shows how very keen he must be on the project. I am very happy for the author, this must be a wonderful feeling when someone like Benedict wants to adapt your book.
I have read two books by Matt Haig so far and I must admit, when reading "The Humans" I sometimes pictured Benedict in the part. And the plot of the new one sounds very interesting. I bet there will be tears again ...

Re: New Project: How To Stop Time

I agree about Humans, Susi - yes, could definitely see Benedict in that part!  (Although I'm not sure the first person style would translate without a voiceover - I loved all the observations by the protagonist!).

Re: New Project: How To Stop Time

For a moment I thought you were talking about the 'Humans' TV show that stars Colin Morgan!

Re: New Project: How To Stop Time

Just ordered the book, curious about the story.

Though,  "Highlander" looks like something similar....Oh, Duncan MacLeod......oh Freddie....Who wants to live forever?  ......💔

Well,  the screenwriter should be good , StudioCanal is fully financing this project.

I liked the book, too. Quite interesting how they would manage to show the flashbacks where Tom looks like a teenager being eighteen years of age. And later, as he looked like twenty something. Another actor obviously should take this part. And he should play the lute and the piano.....ohhhh, I already want the movie! 🙏

Re: New Project: How To Stop Time

So here is an exclusive update. Today I met my editor at Frankfurt Book Fair. They will publish the German translation next year and were told by the British publisher that filming will start in March.

Re: New Project: How To Stop Time

No, unfortunately not. I would have love to do it. But still, having the same publisher as Matt Haig is a nice feeling.
