Filming of The Imitation Game movie begun at Bletchley Park

The Imitation Game movie, script based on Andrew Hodges book Alan Turing: The Enigma, began filming this week at Bletchley Park, centre of British codebreaking during WWII.


Mark Strong (of Welcome to the PunchTinker Tailor Soldier Spy & Kick-Ass ) joins Watchmen actor Matthew Goode (playing  Conel Hugh O'Donel Alexander in charge of  Hut 8 at Bletchley Park, concerned with cracking the Naval Enigma machine code).

Turing, who enjoyed parlour games and created the eponymous Turing test, a conversational examination of machine thinking, deception and intelligence, is played by Benedict Cumberbatch, BBC1's 21st century Sherlock Holmes (with The Hobbit's Martin Freeman playing Watson) and the villainous Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness

Cumberbatch follows Ed Stoppard who played Turing in the memorable 2011 Channel 4 docu-drama Britain's Greatest Codebreaker (Turing film: http://www.turingfilm.com/ ), and Derek Jacobi in Breaking the Code.

Expected to be released in 2014, the 60th anniversary year of Turing's untimely death in 1954, Cumberbatch's Turing movie may see the brilliant mathematician raised to the heights of the likes of Einstein; about time!
