Benedict Cumberbatch to headline “Blood Mountain” Sergei Bodrov thriller

PanARMENIAN.Net - International man of mystery Benedict Cumberbatch is attached to star in Sergei Bodrov’s thriller “Blood Mountain,” it was announced by Altitude Film Sales, which will shop the project to international buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin, TheWrap said.

John Romano recently rewrote Jonathan W. Stokes’ original script, which follows a private military contractor whose special forces team is ambushed and killed during a covert raid. Forced to personally escort one of the world’s most wanted terrorists over hostile terrain, he must fight off insurgents and rival mercenaries to survive long enough to claim a rich bounty and bring the criminal to justice.

Lawrence Bender (“Pulp Fiction”) is producing with Nicola Horlick and James Gibb, while Shaun Redick is executive producing with Silver Reel’s Claudia Bluemhuber and Ian Hutchinson, as well as Derby Street Films’ Rachel Green and Energy Entertainment’s Brooklyn Weaver. Skady Lis will co-produce for Germany’s Getaway Pictures.

Silver Reel is financing the film, which is scheduled to start production in April in Morocco. UTA Independent Film Group was involved with arranging financing for the project.

Cumberbatch, who will soon be seen as Alan Turing in “The Imitation Game,” is also attached to star in James Gray’s long-gestating adventure movie “The Lost City of Z.”
