Katherine Waterston (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Alien: Covenant), Tom Holland (Captain America: Civil WarSpider-Man: Homecoming), Matthew Macfadyen (Ripper Street, Anna Karenina) and Tuppence Middleton (War & Peace, The Imitation Game) also star, with Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Apocalypse, Mad Max: Fury Road) playing Nikola Tesla.

Written by Michael Mitnick (The Giver), the film is directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl), with Basil Iwanyk (Wind River, Hotel Mumbai), Timur Bekmanbetov, and Harvey Weinstein producing, and Cumberbatch and Adam Ackland executive producing.
