From Flicks and Bits:
Working Title has unveiled this first image for the Stephen Hawking drama ‘Theory of Everything.’ Starring Eddie Redmayne as Hawking, the film is directed by Academy Award winner James Marsh (Man on Wire). The movie explores the excitement of the 1960s for Stephen as he studies at Cambridge University. At the dawn of a brilliant life’s work, he falls passionately in love with arts student Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones). Their relationship leads him through personal and scientific challenges and breakthroughs, and as his world opens up he opens up the entire world to new ways of seeing.
Jane Wilde’s memoir “Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen” inspired the film. The screenplay is by Anthony McCarten, who is producer on the film with Lisa Bruce and Working Title co-chairs Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner. The cast of ‘Theory of Everything’ also includes two-time Academy Award nominee Emily Watson and David Thewlis. The creative team also includes cinematographer Benoît Delhomme, production designer John Paul Kelly, costume designer Steven Noble, and film editor Jinx Godfrey (marking her seventh feature with James Marsh). The film opens on November 7th in the US and January 2nd in the UK and Ireland.
