According to Deadline, the film will focus "on the relationship between Hawking and his wife." The film is set up at Working Title, and it's being directed by James Marsh, who worked on the Oscar winning documentary Man of Wire.
Redmayne is also up for a lead role in a film called Far From the Madding Crowd, in which he would star alongside Carey Mulligan. It sounds like he can only choose one or the other, but according to the report, the actor is more interested in playing Hawking. Why wouldn't he be? This would be a great role for any actor, and Redmayne is a talented one. I think this kind of role will take his career to a whole new level.
The report suggests that this »

Catch up with the last seven days in the world of film
It's big. Very big. It could be the biggest ever. Man of Steel is here, the latest Superman film, directed by Zack Snyder and with Christopher Nolan's sticky fingerprints all over it. The film itself burst fully formed into the media at 4am on Tuesday morning, when the worldwide media embargo was lifted. Our first look review handed it three big stars, an assessment repeated when the capo, Peter Bradshaw, gave his verdict.
Critics across the planet weighed in, with the word being on the positive side of mixed. That of course cut no ice with the big cheeses at Warner Bros, who have already commissioned a sequel; nor with our man in the stalls, Joe Queenan, who took the exact opposite view to WB. Give the superheroes a rest, was his basic message. »
Following his musical turn in Les Miserables, rising star Eddie Redmayne might be making a run for Oscar. Deadline has word that the British actor has figured out his next project with Theory of Everything, a project that will see him playing Stephen Hawking for Man on Wire and Project Nim director James Marsh. Working Title is behind the film which will focus on the relationship Hawking has with his wife, though it's not clear if that's Jane Wilde, who was married to Hawking from 1965 to 1991, or Elaine Mason, married from 1995 to 2006. However, Redmayne is also being courted for another project. While a female lead is being sought for the Hawking film that would start shooting this fall, director Thomas Vinterberg is also trying to land Redmayne for his film Far from the Madding Crowd. The project would put Redmayne alongside Carey Mulligan and Matthias Schoenaerts, but reportedly, the actor »

Scarlett Johansson might just have a political bone or two within that curvaceous bod of hers, but she won't be stretching any for that Hillary Clinton biopic movie everyone seems to be distancing themselves from right now.
Johansson was rumored to be a short-lister for James Ponsoldt's "Rodham," based on the 2012 Black-Listed script by Young Il Kim which follows Hillary Rodham through her young go-getter days on Capitol Hill, balancing the business of impeaching President Nixon and her affection for the future impeachee President Bill Clinton.
According to ScarJo's team, though, she's had absolutely zilch to do with it so far.
Like Jessica Chastain before her — the "Zero Dark Thirty" star said last week it was "not true" she was up for the role and that she only found out about the project via the interwebs — ScarJo's team essentially called any talk of her involvement with "Rodham" completely bogus. »

Well, it looks like Carey Mulligan won’t be taking on the role of a young Hillary Clinton. Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Chastain are rumored to still be in the running. [Perez Hilton] Seth Green and his wife were married in 2010, but still have no immediate plans to have kids. When they do decide to pop out some cuties, we’ll totally be there. [Us Magazine] Expecting parents Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are having a boy. Berry’s been (stylishly) sporting a baby bump recently, and announced in April that she was having another child. [The Hollywood Gossip] Apparently, Michael Cera was immediately on board after pal Seth Rogen sent him the script for This Is The End. Find out more about how Rogen recruited his friends for the comedy. »

After Carey Mulligan turned down the role, a representative for Johansson revealed to the Huffington Post that the actress has no involvement in the project and she has never been asked to do this film.
The rep said that the 28-year-old hasn't been approached about it nor seen a script and it is a total fabrication.
Meanwhile, Jessica Chastain, who was rumoured for the part, has also shot down that discussion as pure speculation. (Ani) »

The Les Misérables star is in line to play the theoretical physicist in Theory of Everything, according to Deadline.
Discussions are thought to be underway about who will take the role of the female lead.
However, it is understood that Theory of Everything is Redmayne's priority even if he wins a role in the Thomas Hardy adaptation.

• Sandra Bullock passed once on starring in Will Gluck’s update of Annie, but reports surfaced Wednesday that talks may have started up again. The Oscar-winning actress would play the part of Miss Hannigan, the cruel, often drunk head of the orphanage that houses Annie (Beasts of the Southern Wild’s Quvenzhané Wallis). Carol Burnett played the role in John Huston’s 1982 version of the musical. Bullock can be seen next in The Heat (June 28) with Melissa McCarthy, and then in Alfonso Curaón’s Gravity (October 4) with George Clooney. [The Wrap]

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, »

The short list of actresses who could play former Secretary of State and First Lady Hillary Clinton has just narrowed even further. News broke Tuesday evening that Carey Mulligan was passing on the role in "Rodham," and now another actress has distanced herself from the part.
Scarlett Johansson, who was listed as one of the early front-runners to play the political bigwig, has no involvement in the project.
"Scarlett has never been asked to do this film," a representative for the actress told HuffPost Entertainment. "She hasn't been approached about it nor seen a script. It's a total fabrication."
Johansson and Mulligan aren't the only two actresses who won't play Clinton in the new film. Jessica Chastain was rumored for the part, but shot down that discussion as pure speculation. Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence was also reportedly mentioned as a possibility for the project as well.

Carey Mulligan is officially out as Hillary Clinton. The 28-year-old beauty was reportedly the front-runner for the biopic on the former first lady, which chronicles her time as a young lawyer in 1974 during the height of the Watergate scandal, but has bowed out, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Per the report, the Great Gatsby star wasn't ready to commit to the role, which means there's still a very powerful pantsuit to fill. So here are five other actresses who could step into Hillary's political pumps: 1. Emma Stone: If you watched the star's performance in The Help, then you know why Stone is a perfect pick for Clinton. The actress is sharp, level-headed, poised and intuitive, all »
Last seen warbling up a storm in Les Miserables, Eddie Redmayne is choosing between a couple of likely future gigs, and Deadline has heard that he’s close to locking down the lead in Theory Of Everything, which would tell the story of parts of physicist Stephen Hawking’s life.Working Title is putting the film together with Man On Wire / Shadow Dancer director James Marsh directing an Anthony McCarten script that focuses on the relationship between Hawking and his wife. Redmayne is considered the main choice for the lead (a challenging role given Hawking’s Als) and the company is working up ideas for the female lead.Also in contention – though likely behind Theory – is Thomas Vinterberg’s new take on Thomas Hardy’s Far From The Madding Crowd, which has Carey Mulligan and Matthias Schoenaerts already attached.Before he can consider shooting either film, however, Redmayne has to »
One of the hottest parts in town is up for grabs now that Carey Mulligan has reportedly turned down the role of Hillary Clinton in "Rodham." The biopic checks in with the former Secretary of State and once and possibly future presidential candidate before she was even a blip of a public figure. The film unfolds during the Watergate scandal when then Hillary Rodham was a young lawyer for the House Judiciary Committee, tasked with digging into President Richard Nixon's abuses of power. It follows Rodham as she is forced to choose »

Annnd we're back to Air Force One Square One.
While last week it looked like the sweet and cheeky Carey Mulligan was a sure fit for the supposedly coveted part of a young, ambitious, pre-flotus Hillary Clinton in James Ponsoldt's biopic, "Rodham" — you know, apart from being a limey 'lil Brit (all the fist shakes!) — she's now decided to pull herself out of the role race.
With all the attention surrounding the development of Young Il Kim's 2012 Black-Listed script, which is being shaped for shooting alongside Ponsoldt right now, why would such a promising up-and-comer throw in the towel so late in the game?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mulligan was outright offered the role last week after a chit-chat with "The Spectacular Now" director, who is helming the biopic, but she declined the opportunity because she just wasn't prepared to commit to the project yet ... So, basically just a non-answer then. »

Though Carey Mulligan tackled one iconic fictional figure in Daisy Buchanan, she won't be doing the same for a real-life one.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, "The Great Gatsby" actress has turned down the opportunity to play Hillary Clinton in "Rodham," the biopic about the former Secretary of State, senator, and First Lady.
Sources say Mulligan "was not prepared to commit to the role."
Now, director James Ponsoldt ("The Spectacular Now") must move on to find another lead actress to embody Clinton in her early years, during her time on the committee involved in President Richard Nixon's impeachment. "Rodham" will focus on the young lawyer torn between her career and her feelings for future husband and president, Bill Clinton.

It looks like one major brewing biopic will have to go back to the drawing board to find an actress to lead the movie, so let's dive right in... While Carey Mulligan was recently positioned as the frontrunner for the lead in "Rodham," THR now reports that though she was offered the part, she passed on it. The Black List script by Young Il Kim focuses on Hillary Clinton's student days and her rise into the world of politics, her work on the committee to impeach Richard Nixon, and some dude named Bill. So director James Ponsoldt will have to keep looking, and we'll see if previously tossed around names like Scarlett Johansson, Amanda Seyfried, Reese Witherspoon and Emma Stone get back into the mix. A new draft of the script is currently being worked on with Ponsoldt collaborating with Kim, after which time the phone calls for the »
