In the latest entertainment news today you are going to get all the information about a The 39 Steps.

The 39 Steps, written by John Buchan, will be adapted into a limited television series starring Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange, The Imitation Game).

Alfred Hitchcock already turned the book into a well-liked film in 1935. The rights to the new television series adaptation have been acquired by Netflix.

Each episode will be directed by Edward Berger, who previously collaborated with Cumberbatch on the Showtime series Patrick Melrose, and written by The Revenant’s Mark L. Smith.

According to Deadline, Cumberbatch will play the lead role in a new adaptation of Buchan’s The 39 Steps, which has been turned into four films, a play, and a video game since its 1915 publication.

This most recent version is defined as “a thought-provoking, fast-paced conspiracy thriller series that modernizes the classic book for relevance in the present.

Richard Hannay, a regular guy, unwittingly becomes a pawn in a gigantic, international plot to overthrow the existing order: 39 Steps that will alter the world as we know it, with Hannay as the only obstacle.”

Despite diverging from the source material, Hitchcock’s version nonetheless has the same “wrong man on the run” feel that many of his later most well-known American films would have.

(It also contains a sequence in which the main character is being pursued by a plane, a situation that Hitchcock would recur in the Cary Grant starring North by Northwest.)

The protagonist, Hannay, is the traditional stressed hero who must find out what’s going on while the police and a group of international assassins are hunting him. In the novel, the “39 Steps” is the name of a mystery organization of spies.
