August 2, 2016   Ali   Articles & Interviews, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Comments Off on Fantastic Beasts: Eddie Redmayne explains choosing his wand

The wand, we’re told, chooses the wizard.

But when starring in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, actors got to help design their characters’ wands themselves.

Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne, who plays magi-zoologist Newt Scramander, put a lot of thought into his.

“I sort of assumed that I would have a wand sort of plopped in my hand,” Redmayne tells EW. “But the reality is that these amazing props designers come and then you have really a quite intricate discussion with [director] David Yates about what qualities Newt has. He’s not a showy guy, Newt, so I wanted it be to quite simple. So we decided to have the wand be made out of ashwood and it has quite a few scratches and sort of burn marks – so that you could get the sense that he’s been traveling the world with it and it’s got quite a history to it.”

Continues Redmayne: “But for the handle, they were sort of talking about whether it should be horn or leather, and I didn’t like the idea of like animal products being used, given that he’s a zoologist. So in the end they came up with this idea of sandworm shell and it has a slightly mother of pearly-feel. So we had all these discussions and went back and forth with designs and when the thing arrived I was pretty excited. My inner nine-year-old was having a disco and then I was actually presented with it!”

July 25, 2016   Ali   Articles & Interviews, The Last Days of Night Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne Joins Morten Tyldum In Black Bear’s ‘The Last Days Of Night’

Deadline gives us the exciting news that Eddie has been cast in a new project!

EXCLUSIVE: Teddy Schwarzman’s Black Bear Pictures has set Eddie Redmayne to star in The Last Days Of Night, joining director Morten Tyldum and screenwriter Graham Moore to tell the story about the battle between industrial age titans Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse to electrify America. Redmayne will play famed lawyer Paul Cravath, in his first major career-making case. Schwarzman’s Black Bear teamed with Tyldum and Moore in The Imitation Game, and just before Cannes, Black Bear won an auction for this property, a package that included Moore’s scripted adaptation of his book on the subject that Random House will publish with great fanfare August 16. And Tyldum attached to direct as his followup to Passengers with Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. The Last Days Of Night will start production in the UK late January in anticipation of a fall 2017 release.

Getting Redmayne certainly adds to the prestige pedigree and distributors will be all over this one when Black Bear sets out to find one. Redmayne won the Best Actor Oscar for playing Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, and was nominated this past year for The Danish Girl. He got a strong reaction from the Comic-Con Hall H crowd Saturday during the Warner Bros panel to introduce Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, the first installment of JK Rowling’s Harry Potter spinoff, with Redmayne playing the lead role of Nate Scamander. Warner Bros releases the David Yates-directed film November 16.

Like The Imitation Game —which earned Moore an Oscar and got seven other nominations including Best Director and Best Picture — The Last Days Of Night is built around the complexities and eccentricities of seminal technological geniuses. The publisher describes it as being “about the nature of genius, the cost of ambition, and the battle to electrify America. New York, 1888. The miracle of electric light is in its infancy. Thomas Edison has won the race to the patent office and is suing his only remaining rival, George Westinghouse, for the unheard of sum of one billion dollars. To defend himself, Westinghouse makes a surprising choice in his attorney: He hires an untested twenty-six-year-old fresh out of Columbia Law School, Cravath. The task facing Cravath is beyond daunting. Edison proves to be a formidable, wily, and dangerous opponent. Yet this young, unknown attorney shares with his famous opponent a compulsion to win at all costs. How will he do it? As he takes greater and greater risks, he’ll find that everyone in his path is playing their own game, and no one is quite who they seem.” Woven into the tale are Nikola Tesla, Alexander Graham Bell, Stanford White and other technological titans of the late 19th century.

The film is produced by Nora Grossman, Ido Ostrowsky and Schwarzman, with Black Bear Pictures fully financing. The production company has the Matthew McConaughey-starrer Gold coming next, and then Suburbicon, the George Clooney-directed film that stars Matt Damon.

The intriguing thing here is that it sets up a race with two key components of The Imitation Game who are not part of this. Benedict Cumberbatch is attached to The Weinstein Company’s rival project The Current War, with Cumberbatch to play Edison and possibly Jake Gyllenhaal as Westinghouse in the race to electrify America. Me And Earl And The Dying Girl’s Alfonso Gomez-Rejon is attached to direct.

Redmayne is repped by CAA, United Agents, Gene Parseghian of Parseghian Planco and Untitled Entertainment.

July 23, 2016   Ali   Events, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Guest Appearances Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne Handed Out Wands to Everyone at His Comic-Con Panel

Eddie was at Comic Con today in San Diego and Time.com gives us a small look at the WB panel.

He stars in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

To promote Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, star Eddie Redmayne walked through the massive Hall H and handed out wands to a crowd of thousands during San Diego Comic-Con.

The panel itself, including Colin Farrell and director David Yates, remained tight-lipped about movie details. “There’s going to be a hole that opens up and he’ll drop in,” Farrell said of co-star Dan Fogler when the latter almost gave away even the most minor of clues.

But they all shared their enthusiasm for being able to join the world of Harry Potter. “It’s like getting your Hogwarts letter way late in the game,” said Ezra Miller.
