Eddie Redmayne and James Marsh could be at the heart of plenty of awards season buzz for their upcoming film The Theory of Everything, a biopic on the college years of Stephen Hawking and his romance with future wife Jane Wilde. Directed by Oscar winning documentarian James Marsh (Man on Wire, Project Nim), Redmayne portrays Hawking as he courts Wilde (Felicity Jones) and deals with his diagnosis of ALS disease. This also marks the first film portrayal of the famed astrophysicist, with the exception of the BBC TV movie Hawking starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
The Theory of Everything will get its premiere at TIFF in September, but it will get a wide release in the U.S. November 7. Watch the trailer for the film also starring Emily Watson and David Thewlis:
