Benedict Cumberbatch is set to star in Amazon Prime’s mini-series ‘Good Omens’ as Satan.
Reports suggest that he will just provide the voice of a giant animated Satan.
Cumberbatch will star alongside Frances McDormand, who plays the voice of God in the series, which is based on Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s book.
“It’s a giant animated Satan. He turns up and we needed a performance that works. So we found a young British help that needed a lot of direction from Douglas… Benedict Cumberbatch,” said Gaiman, alongside a star-studded cast of on Hamm, Michael Sheen, Nick Offerman, Jack Whitehall, Miranda Richardson, Adria Arjona just to name a few.
Described as a blend of humor and horror, fantasy and drama, Good Omens takes place in the modern day when the World is on the brink of Armageddon and God and Satan must come together to prevent the apocalypse befalling humanity.
The show will launch on Amazon Prime Video on May 31.
