The BBC did a pretty solid TV movie version of one of my favorite books, Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere, several years ago, but the announcement of the cast of their upcoming Radio Play version of the book has me itching to see it turned into a film more than ever.

BBC 4 has announced that the cast of the upcoming NEVERWHERE radio play will feature: Benedict Cumberbatch, James McAvoy, Natalie Dormer, Sophie Okonedo, David Harewood, Christopher Lee and Bernard Cribbins.

The show will begin airing on March 16th and will run for five episodes that week.

The good news now is that if the radio play is a hit, it sounds like they’ve already got a great jump on casting for the film.
