Benedict Cumberbatch Joins Steve McQueen's '12 YEARS A SLAVE'

Steve McQueen's (Hunger, Shame) 12 Years A Slave is quickly gathering one impressive cast as ShowBlitz reports Benedict Cumberbatch has landed a role. The rest of the cast includes Chiwetel Ejiofor, Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Paul Dano, Scott McNairy, Taran Killam, Ruth Negga, and Adepero Oduye. The film is based on the memoirs of Solomon Northup, a free black man who, in 1841, was captured by men that sold him into slavery, and was only freed after earning the attention of a Canadian carpenter.
