Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne Named Ambassador of U.K. Film Charity

The Hollywood Reporter shares the news that Into Film has revealed that they have named Eddie as their new ambassador.

Into Film, which helps children aged 5-19, was launched last year.

Later this month he’ll be donning the robes of Newt Scamander as production on the first Harry Potter spin-off – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – gets underway.

But before then, Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne is embarking on a more charitable endeavor, having been revealed as the new ambassador for U.K.-based charity Into Film.

Supported by the British Film Institute, Into Film looks to help children and young people aged 5-19 by placing film at the heart of their education and personal development. Redmayne first encountered the charity’s work at the organization’s launch event last year.

“I went to the Westminster Academy last year with Into Film and saw firsthand the impact that all aspects film can have on young people – the power to inspire, connect and expand our understanding of ourselves and the world around us,” Redmayne said in a statement.

“I absolutely loved the day, it was wonderful to meet so many young, galvanized people who were all keen to find out more about the film making process. I hope through being an ambassador for Into Film I am able to help raise awareness of how film can contribute to their cultural and creative lives.”

Meanwhile, the cast for Fantastic Beasts is continuing to expand. On Wednesday, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Colin Farrell was joining the film, playing a wizard that Redmayne’s Scamander meets in New York.

Waterston will play the role of Tina, or Porpentina, a witch who operates in the U.S.
Katherine Waterston, who appeared with Joaquin Phoenix in Inherent Vice, has nabbed the coveted lead opposite Eddie Redmayne in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the Harry Potter spinoff from Warner Bros.

David Yates, who directed of the last four Harry Potter films, will helm the project which has a screenplay by Potter author J.K. Rowling. The script is taking its cues from Newt Scamander’s Hogwarts textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Potter producer David Heyman is back as producer, this time accompanied by Rowling. Steve Kloves, who wrote seven out of the eight Potter movies, and Lionel Wigram are also producing.

Waterston appeared in Boardwalk Empire and had a star turn in Vice, which was directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. She will portray Chrisann Brennan, Steve Jobs’ girlfriend, in the upcoming Jobs biopic directed by Danny Boyle.

Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne and Benedict Cumberbatch lead the Queen’s Birthday Honours list

Hello Magazine shares the good news that Eddie is one of the individuals on the Queen’s Birthday Honours to be recognized as he is being awarded an OBE (Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire). Congrats to Eddie and to the others honored by the Queen!

Eddie Redmayne and Benedict Cumberbatch will soon have another award each to add to their growing collection after being listed in the Queen’s Birthday Honours. The British actors, who came head to head throughout awards season, have both been recognised for their services to drama.

Oscar-winning Eddie is set to continue his incredible year with an OBE, while Benedict has been named a CBE. Although they have yet to make an official comment on the honour, both actors will likely be delighted to add yet another accolade to their vast collection of awards.

Joining the pair on the list is Twelve Years a Slave actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, who has been given a CBE, and American actor Kevin Spacey. The 55-year-old has been awarded an honorary knighthood for his services to British theatre and International Culture, leaving him feeling like “an adopted son”.

“I am honoured and humbled by such recognition from the Queen. I must thank the British public for being so supportive of my efforts on behalf of the Old Vic. I feel like an adopted son,” Kevin said.

The actors are among 1,163 people recognised by the Queen for their achievements, with Lenny Henry among the famous faces to be granted a knighthood.

The comedian said learning the news gave him “a lovely feeling” and was “like being filled with lemonade”.

Critcally-acclaimed singer and songwriter Van Morrison has also been given a knighthood for his services to music and tourism in Northern Ireland, the inspiration for many of his hit songs.

Sports stars made up five percent of the recipients, with former England footballer Frank Lampard named an OBE, rugby star Jonny Wilkinson awarded a CBE for his dedication to rugby union, and England women’s football captain Casey Stoney named an MBE.

Former Welsh rugby star Gareth Edwards has also been awarded a knighthood for his long service to the game.

Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne ‘hugely excited’ to star in Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne says he is “hugely delighted” at being cast in the forthcoming Harry Potter spin-off – and described JK Rowling as a “genius”.

The 33-year-old said he is “thrilled” to star in Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, a screenplay written by Rowling, after it was announced earlier this week that he is set to play Newt Scamander in the new Warner Bros film.

Speaking to the Standard last night, he said he enjoyed the original Harry Potter novels and “always loved that world”.

He said: “I’m hugely excited, JK Rowling’s a genius, I am so thrilled to be a part of it but I can’t say a single word beyond that…I’ve always loved that world and I feel thrilled to be invited into it.”

Speaking at a dinner in his honour at Quaglino’s in Mayfair in his capacity as international ambassador for Omega, he said he has been enjoying some “gentle downtime” with wife Hannah Bagshawe.

Since they got married in December, Redmayne has been busy filming and named best actor at the Oscars for his portrayal of Professor Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything.

He said: “I have been in New York for a few days, I’ve just finished a film about three weeks ago and it’s the first time in a long while that Hannah and I have had a moment of freedom, so we’ve been on holiday recently…I’m sort of gently starting workon this new film. So getting stuck in, but also it’s slightly more gentle after the, a bit of sort of gentle downtime.”

He declined to comment on how Bagshawe, who had her arm in a plaster cast, injured herself, but she is understood to have damaged it falling off a horse.

She kept her arm hidden when posing for photographers.

Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne Officially Cast in ‘Harry Potter’ Prequel ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’

According to the Hollywood Reporter it is official … Eddie will star in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Eddie Redmayne is about to find out where to find J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts come from, with the actor signing on to star in the forthcoming prequel to the successful Harry Potter series of books.

Redmayne will play Newt Scamander, the foremost magizoologist of the world of the Wizarding world introduced in Rowling’s series of best-selling novels and subsequent feature films. Scamander will be at the center of the new movie, searching the world for new magical creatures to discover and catalog in his Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which will become a textbook used by Harry and friends in Hogwarts school in years to come. (The Hollywood Reporter noted that Redmayne was a frontrunner for the role in April.)

In a statement accompanying the announcement, Warner Bros. president of creative development Greg Silverman said that Redmayne had “emerged as one of today’s most extraordinarily talented and acclaimed actors,” adding that the studio was “thrilled to welcome him into J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, where we know he will deliver a remarkable performance.”

Rowling moved into screenwriting for the project, making her debut on Fantastic Beasts, which will be directed by David Yates, who directed the final four entries into the Harry Potter series. Producers on the project include Rowling, David Heyman, Lionel Wigram and Steve Kloves, who worked on the scripts for all but one of the Potter movies.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is scheduled for a Nov. 18, 2016 release in 3D and IMAX.
