We look forward to bringing it to audiences around the world.”

StudioCanal is fully financing How to Stop Time, and will distribute in the UK, France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand. Cumberbatch’s production company SunnyMarch will produce the film, with Adam Ackland producing and Cumberbatch executive producing.
