Comments Off on Felicity Jones Joins Eddie Redmayne In Stephen Hawking Pic ‘Theory Of Everything’
Ali

Deadline shares that Felicity Jones has been cast opposite Eddie in his new picture “Theory of Everything”.

EXCLUSIVE: Felicity Jones is set to star opposite Eddie Redmayne in Theory Of Everything for Working Title. I’m hearing that Universal Pictures has signed on for the project in which Redmayne plays physicist Stephen Hawking. The film is to be directed by James Marsh, who shared the Best Documentary Oscar for Man On Wire. Jones will play his wife, Jane. When they meet at Cambridge, he is able-bodied and she is an art student. They fall in love and even though he is given a death sentence with an ALS diagnosis that means two years to live, she makes the choice to marry him. The film focuses on the highs and lows of their life as he becomes more famous than most able-bodied men. At the same time, his confinement to a chair with a crippling disability has a profound impact on her. Anthony McCarten wrote the script.

Redmayne, in high demand after Les Miserables, agreed last week to re-team with Working Title partners Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner on the picture, for a fall start. Jones will next be seen starring with Ralph Fiennes in The Invisible Woman at Sony Classics, and she recently wrapped the Rupert Goold-directed True Story at New Regency, opposite Jonah Hill and James Franco. Jones is also set for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and there have been recent web rumors in light of Shailene Woodley not appearing in the second film as Mary Jane Watson that Jones is playing Felicia Hardy, a Spidey love interest and villain with the alter ego Black Cat. The Like Crazy star’s reps would not comment, but I think there is fire behind that smoke. Jones is repped by WME, Independent Talent Group and Peikoff Mahan.

Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne To Play Stephen Hawking In Working Title’s ‘Theory Of Everything’
Ali

Thanks to Deadline.com we have exciting news! Eddie has been cast in a new project!!!

EXCLUSIVE: After crushing it on Les Miserables, Eddie Redmayne is being fought over for his next lead role. I heard that he’s going to land on Theory Of Everything, and that he’ll play physicist Stephen Hawking in the film that Working Title is fast assembling with director James Marsh, who shared the Best Documentary Oscar for Man On Wire. The film focus is on the relationship between Hawking and his wife and it marks a re-team of the actor and Working Title partners Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner from Les Miserables. They are actively discussing the female lead, with an early fall start being eyed. Redmayne has also been courted to star with Carey Mulligan and Matthias Schoenaerts in the Thomas Vinterberg-directed Far From The Madding Crowd, but I believe that his priority is the Hawking project written by Anthony McCarten. It is a potential tour de force role as Hawking, who has achieved so much despite his affliction with ALS. This opens the opportunity for the kind of work Daniel Day-Lewis turned in in My Left Foot and Mathieu Amalric in The Diving Bell And The Butterfly.I’ve been watching Redmayne since his tragic turn as a spy’s son in the Robert De Niro-directed The Good Shepherd, and he’s got the chops. He also won a Tony Award for Red. Redmayne is currently filming Jupiter Ascending for Warner Bros, directed by Lana and Andy Wachowski, with Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis. He’s repped by CAA and manager Gene Parseghian and UK agent Dallas Smith. ICM Partners reps McCarten.

Comments Off on Powder Blue | Stills & Captures
Ali

I have added over a thousand images to the gallery from Eddie’s film Powder Blue which he co-stars with Jessica Biel, Forrest Whitaker, Ray Liotta and Patrick Swayze. The film was different than I was expecting and I ended up really enjoying it.


On the gritty streets of Los Angeles, the destinies of four people desperate for connection and redemption are about to collide. This powerful thriller tells the story of an overwhelmed erotic dancer (Jessica Biel), a grieving husband who has lost his will to live (Forest Whitaker), a terminally ill ex-con (Ray Liotta) and a pathologically shy mortician (Eddie Redmayne). This film movingly chronicles the imperfect lives of people teetering on the edge of despair and the miracles that bring them back. Epiphany’s will be had, truths will be revealed, some hearts will shatter and others will heal. Fear will be overcome by courage, and ultimately in one way or the other, love will be found.

Comments Off on Five questions for… Les Misérables star Eddie Redmayne
Ali

Metro.co.uk did this interview with Eddie in anticipation of the UK release of Les Misérables!

Les Misérables star Eddie Redmayne talks about what kept his spirits up during filming and smelly sets.

Was the live singing in Les Misérables nerve-racking or invigorating?
I found it invigorating. I never did a musical the other way like Amanda [Seyfried] has done, with lip-syncing to playback. I feel like singing live is the only way I could do it: it allows the spontaneity of film acting without spending 95 per cent of your thought power on moving your mouth in time.

How did you approach playing Marius, the one revolutionary character who comes from money?
I tried to add things to make him have more edges, rather than have him be a guy who waltzes through singing as people die for him. We wanted to bring the sense of what this guy had given up, which you find out about in the book, to make him more three-dimensional than an operatic stereotype of the hero.

Is it hard to think back to a time before mass communication, especially with all these revolutionaries manning the barricade?
You had to send messengers. Is it hard to imagine? I suppose it is not that hard because mobile phones and all that stuff have happened in my lifetime. I remember a time without it, when you would be meeting someone and then turning up and the person is not there. You could not just call them up.

What was the atmosphere like on this set?
Amanda has the capacity to keep you constantly smiling. There were acts of generosity, like every Friday, Hugh [Jackman] would buy everybody on the cast and crew a lottery ticket. Having Sacha [Baron Cohen] and Helena [Bonham Carter] around was wonderful. Russell Crowe had people around for singing sessions. There was something about the fact that we had this rehearsal for nine weeks, which meant it felt more like a theatre company than any other film cast I have worked with.

How did you cope with the turpentine smell onstage every night when you were performing in the play Red?
We rehearsed for a month and performed for two months in London, then we went to Broadway and did four or five months. It was interesting, as far as smells were concerned. The director, Michael Grandage, wanted Mark Rothko’s studio to smell like turpentine, in the same way that [Les Misérables director] Tom Hooper had rotting fish and horse dung there on set.
