Following confirmation at the recent D23 Expo that Chiwetel Ejiofor will be playing Baron Mordo in Doctor Strange, the actor offers he is looking forward to it.
Ejiofor confirms to EW.com that he is doing the movie with: “I am doing Doctor Strange, and I’m incredibly excited about it.”
However, per the norm, Ejiofor can't say much.
“That’s all I say,” he said.
Ejiofor did go on to mention co-stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swintona as well.
“He’s a good friend of mine,” Ejiofor said of Cumberbatch, who costarred with Ejiofor in 12 Years a Slave. “So, it’s gonna be fun. And Tilda Swinton — I haven’t worked with her, but I’m excited to work with her. She’s brilliant.”
"Doctor Strange" has a November 4, 2016 release directed by Scott Derrickson starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange and Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One. Rachel Adams is also rumored for the female lead.
