Eddie Redmayne to play Stephen Hawking?

Jun 13 2013, 4:30am CDT | by

Eddie Redmayne is being lined up to play Stephen Hawking.

The 'Les Miserables' breakout star has been offered the role of the celebrated theoretical physicist in new biopic, 'Theory of Everything', according to Deadline.

Best Documentary Oscar-winner James Marsh will direct the feature, while Working Title's Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner are producing based on a script by Anthony McCarten.

The film is set to focus on Stephen's personal life and his relationship with his wife rather than his scientific endeavours. The lead female character is thought to be Hawking's first wife, Jane Wilde, and not his second spouse, Elaine Mason.

The physicist suffers from a degenerative motor neuron disease related to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and is almost entirely paralysed, communicating only via a speech-generating device, so the role would be a tough challenge for in-demand actor Redmayne.

Hawking has portrayed himself several times on the small screen, but never in film. He voiced an animated version of himself on both 'The Simpsons' and 'Futurama', as well as guest-starring on 'The Big Bang Theory' in 2012 and appearing in a 1993 episode of 'Star Trek: The Next Generation'.

Meanwhile, 'Jupiter Ascending' hunk Redmayne is also being courted to star opposite Carey Mulligan in Thomas Vinterberg's adaptation of Thomas Hardy's classic novel 'Far From The Madding Crowd'.

A new trailer has arrived for Jupiter Ascending, in which the Wachowski siblings pull back the curtain on the fantasy universe in which the film is set. The new teaser establishes the back story to the film, in which we learn that a powerful alien dynasty controls Earth, and doesn’t take kindly to having its ownership challenged. Because, as it turns out, Mila Kunis’ lowly toilet cleaner is actually Earth’s true heir, putting her on collision course with Eddie Redmayne’s alien overlord. Take ...

Copernicus is really pissed about the Stephen Hawking biopic THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING that he saw at

Sep 15 2014 12:23am CDT | Source: aintitcool

AICN's resident Astrophysicist is not to be trifled with!!! Read the full article on AICN THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING makes me want to scream.  It features Eddie Redmayne’s impressive performance as Stephen Hawking, which will surely make him the frontrunner for a Best Actor trophy.  But it squanders this brilliance by failing to communicate what should be the main point of the story.  It focuses so much on Hawking’s disability and first marriage, and so thoroug ...

THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING Review | TIFF 2014

Sep 8 2014 6:55am CDT | Source: Collider

A Stephen Hawking biopic was always an inevitability.  The man is simply too iconic and successful with too much physical and emotional baggage for filmmakers to ignore him forever.  Thankfully the movie that emerged is not as nauseatingly maudlin as reasonably feared, nor is it as harshly honest as some might have hoped.  The Theory Of Everything shoots straight for the middle in it’s telling of Hawking’s tragically inspiring life and ulti ...
