Director of Benedict Cumberbatch’s latest project is the Norwegian Morten Tyldum, who got famous during last March with his surprising crime thriller “Headhunters”, a film adaption of Jo Nesbø’s same named Thriller (Note: Nesbø’s novel is a creepy thriller with many unexpected twists and a surprise ending – worth reading!).
Tyldum’s new film, The Imitation Game, is a biopic based on the life of Alan Turing, the famous British logician, mathematician and crypthoanalytic.
Turing was born on 23 June 1912 in London, is one of the most important and influential theorist of the early development of computers and computer science, the predictability model of the Turing machine is one of the main foundations of theoretical computer science.
In 2009, the then-Prime Minister Gordon Brown responded to a petition signed by thousands of Brits for a posthumous apology from the British government for the gruesome crimes on Alan Turing. Brown, speaking on behalf of the British Government on 10 September 2009: „So on behalf of the British government […] I am very proud to say: we’re sorry, you deserved so much better.”
At Turing’s 100th birthday in 2012 worldwide events took place to honour and commemorarte his great services and works.
In The Imitation Game Benedict will play the role of Alain Turing, the exceptional scientist, as female lead we are going to see Keira Knigthley. In addition, Matthew Goode will take the role of Hugh Alexander, another code-hacker.
