Wes Anderson is diving back into the world of Roald Dahl.

The Oscar-nominated writer/director, who most recently made The French Dispatch, is directing an adaptation of Dahl's 1977 collection of short stories The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More for Netflix, according to The Hollywood Reporter and Variety. Anderson, 52, directed the 2009 animated movie Fantastic Mr. Fox, which is based on the Dahl book of the same name.

Benedict Cumberbatch — who currently has awards buzz for his lead role in Netflix's The Power of the Dog — is reportedly playing the role of Henry Sugar, a man who studies magical ways to cheat at gambling. Dev Patel, Ben Kingsley and Ralph Fiennes are also among the cast, the outlets report.
