Benedict Cumberbatch Joins GUANTÁNAMO DIARY
It’s official: Benedict Cumberbatch’s debut as a feature film producer will be GUANTÁNAMO DIARY, which his company is producing with development funding from Social Construct’s film/TV joint venture, Convergent Media. Social Construct and Convergent Media founder Zak Kilberg is Executive Producing. Other producers include Michael Bronner (CAPTAIN PHILLIPS), Michael and Christine Holder of Zero Gravity (BEASTS OF NO NATION), and Lloyd Levin (GREEN ZONE, UNITED 93). The film is based on the New York Times best-selling book of the same name, by current Guantánamo prisoner and acclaimed author Mohamedou Ould Slahi. The Times calls the book “the most profound account yet written of what it is like to be collateral damage” in the “War on Terror.”
