The first image of Benedict Cumberbatch in The Child in Time has been released. With filming now underway, further casting has also been revealed with Kelly Macdonald (Boardwalk Empire, Trainspotting), Stephen Campbell Moore (The History Boys, The Go-Between) and Saskia Reeves (Luther, Shetland) joining Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Parade’s End) in The Child in Time, Stephen Butchard’s adaption of Ian McEwan’s award-winning novel. Filming is underway in the UK with Julian Farino at the helm.
Produced by Pinewood Television and SunnyMarch TV for BBC One, co-produced by Materpiece, The Child In Time is a lyrical and heart-breaking exploration of love, loss and the power of things unseen.
Helen Gregory, Executive Producer for Pinewood Television, says:
“I’m so delighted to have such a talented cast join Benedict, Julian and the team and I’m very much looking forward to seeing them bring Stephen’s script to screen.”
