The streaming giant Netflix has secured adaptation and has now given the green light to production. “39 Steps” (original title) is based on John Buchanan’s novel of the same name since 1915, and was first made into a film by Alfred Hitchcock 20 years later. Adam Auckland and their joint venture, Sunnymarch, co-chair Cumberbatch with Chamber One Pictures, Syndicate Entertainment and Anonymous Content.
“39 Steps” has been described as a provocative, action-packed goo conspiracy plot thriller. The plot is set in the present day. Richard Honey (Cumberbatch) is actually an ordinary man, but turns out to be a key figure in a far – reaching goo conspiracy conspiracy aimed at changing the world order forever – only Honey stands in her way.
Benedict Cumberbatch is best known around the world for his title role in the BBC series “Sherlock”. This was followed by major roles in films such as “Star Trek into Darkness”, “Osage County in August”, and “Doctor Strange in the Marvel Universe”. On screen, he recently starred in the showtime mini-series “Patrick Melrose” and Richard III. In the “hollow crown.”
“39 Steps” is considered one of the best classics from Alfred Hitchcock’s over. The fast-paced British thriller is characterized by the first use of “McGuffin” – on the one hand the plot leads forward and at the same time is relatively insignificant to its original content. Another film adaptation by director Ralph Thomas followed in 1959, and in 1978 Britain’s Don Sharp again acquired the template for a film.
