Benedict Cumberbatch is everywhere we turn nowadays, and today he's found yet another way to continue his ubiquitousness streak. Deadline is reporting out of the Toronto International Film Festival that the Sherlock star is now attached to play the lead role in The Lost City of Z, the long in-development adaptation of David Grann's book that director James Gray is attached to helm. 

If the title sounds familiar it may be because the project has been around since 2008. For a long time Brad Pitt was set to play the story's lead, British soldier/spy Percy Fawcett, though he left the movie all the way back in November of 2010. Gray, however, has been attached from the very beginning, and in the time since has directed the dramatic mystery The Immigrant with Jeremy Renner (which premiered at Cannes earlier this year), and written the script for the Clive Owen-starring crime thriller Blood Ties.
