Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones Might Work Together Again in a Movie

Three years ago, we fell in love with the romantic story of Stephen and Jane Hawking thanks to the wonderful portrayals by Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones on The Theory of Everything. Now, they might be reteaming again for a film project called The Aeronauts for Amazon Studios according to a report by Deadline.

It has been reported that they are in talks now on a period action adventure based on true events about two 19th century hot air balloonists that would be directed by Tom Harper (Peaky Blinders, War & Peace). Jones would play balloon pilot Amelia Wren and Redmayne would be scientist James Glaisher. In 1862, they embarked on an extraordinary journey to discover the secrets of the heavens. In the process, they fly higher in an open balloon than anyone ever has — either before or since. They make breathtaking discoveries, but as they ascend to the highest reaches of the atmosphere, they are forced into an epic fight for survival.

The project is being produced by Mandeville Films’ Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman, who are coming off the weekend sleeper hit Wonder, and Jules Claassen. The script is by Jack Thorne, who wrote the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, based on a J.K. Rowling story. He’s also adapted Philip Pullman’s fantasy novel trilogy His Dark Materials for BBC One. Thorne also was a writer on Wonder. The project will shoot in London with a Spring 2018 start.

This will be the second collaboration between Redmayne and Jones. There is no denial that this film will be exciting given their amazing chemistry on The Theory of Everything. Redmayne will star in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald scheduled to be released in cinemas next year while Jones is starring in the Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic, On the Basis of Sex.
