The first look at Jupiter Ascending (with a brief clip featuring Eddie!) has now appeared online:
Eddie is currently filming ‘The Theory of Everything‘, the story of celebrated physicist Stephen Hawking. I have added some pictures of him on set as Stephen. Check them out!
The feature is produced by Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner alongside Lisa Bruce and Anthony McCarten. The original screenplay has been written by Anthony McCarten and is inspired by Jane Hawking’s memoir, “Travelling to Infinity: My life with Stephen.
The cast also includes David Thewlis, Emily Watson, Charlie Cox, Simon McBurney, Maxine Peake, Harry Lloyd and Felicity Jones as Jane. The director is James Marsh, who received Academy and BAFTA awards for his documentary, Man on Wire, and further awards for Project Nim.
Filming will take place in Cambridge and at other locations in the UK.
Looking as dapper as usual in Gucci, Eddie attended the GQ Men of the Year Awards which took place in London last night. It turned out to be a great night for Eddie as he took home the Remy Martin Breakthrough prize. Check out the pictures in our gallery!
Rising star Eddie Redmayne caught everyone’s eye with his performance in last year’s Les Miserables and now on the verge of landing the biggest movie role of his career thus far. The project is Theory of Everything and Redmayne would be playing physicist Stephen Hawking. Oscar winning documentary filmmaker James Marsh (Man on Wire) is set to helm the picture.
Theory of Everything, penned by Anthony McCarten, will explore the relationship between Hawking and his wife. It surely will be a very challenging role for Redmayne. Anyone familiar with Stephen Hawking is aware of the fact that he’s been battling a motor neuron disease that’s related to ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) for the majority of his life. He was first diagnosed at age 21 and doctors expected he had about two more years to live. Understandably, news of the diagnosis left Hawking depressed and he saw little reason to continue with his studies. Those feelings started to change when Hawking began a relationship and got engaged to his soon-to-be wife, Jane Wilde, who , as Hawking put it himself, gave him “something to live for”. It will be interesting to see how the relationship is explored in the film and what Redmayne can bring to the role.
No word yet on who will play Hawking’s wife, but filming is expected to start in the early fall.
Very cute pictures of Eddie attending the RHS Chelsea Flower Show on May 20th, check them out in the gallery!
Eddie attended the Costume Institute Gala for the “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City last night. You can see him pictured with actresses Mamie Gummer and Zoe Kazan. Take a look at the rest of the pictures in our gallery!
Eddie appears on the cover of the April issue of W Magazine with actress Brit Marling as part of an editorial with them and Emayatzy Corinealdi titled The New Guard: Hollywood’s Freshest Faces. You can read it online here!
Back in 2004, Eddie modelled for ‘Denim People’ – a collection of designs from renowned designers. Some images from the shoot have surfaced and we can see Eddie modelling “Brooklyn” by Martin Storey, “Saucer” by Carol Meldrum, “Combat” by Carol Meldrum. You can see the rest of the pictures in our gallery. If, however, you’d like to add this to your Eddie collection, good news is you can still purchase it on amazon!
