According to The Hollywood Reporter, this will be the first project from Roald Dahl’s estate to head to Netflix. The deal was announced in 2018.

Published in 1982, the collection features both fiction and nonfiction stories, with the title one centering on Henry Sugar, a man who steals a book that shows him how to see through objects and predict the future.

This touches off a series of misadventures that involve evading Mafia henchmen, working with a Hollywood makeup artist to craft new identities and setting up orphanages around the world.

Benedict will play the character, and also act as a link to the other stories by playing multiple roles throughout.

It’s unknown at the moment which roles Dev, Ralph and Ben will be portraying.

Many other Roald Dahl adaptations are in the works right now, including this one!
