Benedict Cumberbatch already faced off against Chris Pine in “Star Trek Into Darkness” as Khan. And he’s starring in Guillermo del Toro’s (“Pacific Rim”) upcoming film “Pacific Rim”. In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, del Toro said he wants Cumberbatch for his adaptation of “Frankenstein”. This sounds good to me! Though del Toro has so many projects this will probably be a while. Cumberbatch will voice Smaug in “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” out this December.
