How Eddie Redmayne Became Stephen Hawking in ‘The Theory of Everything’

28 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Eddie Redmayne always knew that the toughest critic of “The Theory of Everything” would be the man he portrays onscreen — Stephen Hawking. The 72-year-old physicist recently made the trek from his home in Cambridge, England, to Working Title’s production offices in London to watch the biopic based on his life. Hawking’s longtime battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Als) has left him a quadriplegic, and he speaks through a computer-generated voice amplifier. Before the screening, he met Redmayne. “He took a while to type something, then said, ‘I’ll let you know what I think — good or otherwise,’ ” Redmayne recalls. “I said, ‘Stephen, if it’s otherwise, you don’t need to go into details.’ ”

After the lights came up, a nurse wiped a tear from Hawking’s eye. He called the film “broadly true,” and even celebrated with the film’s director James Marsh and screenwriter Anthony McCarten »

Steven Spielberg Begins Principal Photography On Untitled Cold War Spy Thriller Starring Tom Hanks

6 October 2014 1:16 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Three-time Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg has begun principal photography on an untitled Cold War spy thriller starring two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks (“Forrest Gump,” “Philadelphia”).

The production, which also stars Tony Award winner Mark Rylance (“Intimacy,” “The Other Boleyn Girl”), Academy Award nominee Amy Ryan (“Gone Baby Gone,” “Win Win”) and Academy Award nominee Alan Alda (“M*A*S*H,” “Crimes and Misdemeanors”), will shoot on location in New York and Berlin.

Production in New York was possible due to support from state and local film agencies, and in Berlin, through the support of several film funds.

The film is the true story of James Donovan, an attorney who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible mission to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.

20th Century Fox is co-financing the film with DreamWorks in association with Participant Media, »

Filming Begins on Steven Spielberg’s Untitled Cold War Spy Thriller Starring Tom Hanks

6 October 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

DreamWorks and Disney have announced that principal photography has commenced on Steven Spielberg's untitled Cold War spy thriller starring Tom Hanks.  As we previously reported, the film tells the true story of James Donovan, an attorney who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible mission to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.  The film will also star Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan, and Alan Alda, and will shoot on location in New York and Berlin.  Following Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can, and The Terminal, this will mark Spielberg's fourth film collaboration with Hanks, and hopefully it will be a fruitful one, especially since they're working from a script by the Coen Brothers.  Hanks and Spielberg's most recent collaboration was as executive producers on HBO's miniseries The Pacific.

Oscar Watch: Best Actor Race Most Crowded Ever; Why Academy Should Double Number Of Nominees

28 September 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

We are only just on the cusp of October and you can already put the “No Vacancy” sign out on the Best Actor Oscar race. Sorry, no room. Don’t even think about jumping in. Every year of late, it seems the Actor race gets richer while the Actress contest actively searches for candidates. Remember how “sure things” Tom Hanks and Robert Redford didn’t even make the cut last year? Perhaps that is just a reflection of what juicy roles the industry is offering on either side of the gender divide.

Nevertheless, for 2014 it’s worse than ever and we have a serious glut of qualified Best Actor possibilities — just under 30 by my count, and even more seem to be trying to gain entry. This is the year the Board Of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences really ought to amend the rules, just as »

Amy Ryan, Alan Alda And Two More Join Tom Hanks In Steven Spielberg’s Untitled Cold War Thriller

22 July 2014 7:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whenever Steven Spielberg makes a movie, we pay attention – and when it was revealed that he’d be re-teaming with his Saving Private RyanCatch Me If You Can and The Terminal star Tom Hanks for his latest, an Untitled Cold War Thriller, we went from interested to excited. Add in that Ethan and Joel Coen penned the latest iteration of the script, working from an original draft from Matt Charman, and you’ve got the recipe for an absolutely terrific thriller. Now, Spielberg has enlisted the help of four other stars for major roles in the project.

First Look At Eddie Redmayne And Felicity Jones In Stephen Hawking Biopic Theory Of Everything

13 June 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the most exciting biopics coming to us this fall has to be Theory of Everything, from Man on Wire helmer James Marsh. Covering the early life of famed physicist Stephen Hawking, the movie stars Eddie Redmayne as Hawking and Felicity Jones as his wife Jane Wilde. Now, we’ve received our first look at the film, which you can check out below.

Granted, the shot of Hawking and Wilde on their wedding day is not the most exhilarating image we could have received, but it shows Redmayne and Jones in character, which for me will be the biggest draw for Theory of Everything. Both actors are tremendously talented up-and-comers who seem primed to top a future New A-List in Hollywood. Redmayne is probably best known to audiences for playing Marius in Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables, but he also had major roles in My Week with Marilyn opposite »

As he collected his third Tony Award recently, for his performance in Twelfth Night, British actor Mark Rylance could not have anticipated the level of excitement that would fall upon him following the announcement of his casting in Steven Spielberg’s as-yet-untitled Cold War thriller. The DreamWorks project will mark his first real foray into big studio productions, despite huge success in the world of theatre.

With a script most recently re-worked by the legendary Coen Brothers, based on a pitch by Matt Charman (Suite Francaise), the story centres upon a successful American lawyer named James Donovan. He is drafted in by the CIA to negotiate the release of a U2 spy plane pilot, who was shot down over Russia, and is being held by the government. Academy Award winner Tom Hanks is attached to star as Donovan, though it is currently unknown which role Rylance will be taking.
