Benedict Cumberbatch is in negotiations to star in Plan B’s “The Lost City of Z.”

James Gray is directing, with Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner and Anthony Katagas producing for Plan B. Panorama Media will finance the pic.

Story is based on the David Grann book and follows Percy Fawcett, a British colonel who disappeared in the 1920s searching for a mythical city he had said he had discovered on a prior expedition.

He is also expected to shoot the biopic “The Imitation Game” this fall.
