The collaboration of Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne, marked by excellent directorial and screenwriting work, resulted in several Oscar nominations, one victory and acclaim from critics and audiences. Now the duo, remembered by moviegoers in Stephen Hawking's Universe, is preparing for a new collaboration. According to the Variety portal, Redmayne and Jones are in talks to get the lead roles in The Aeronauts.|
Based on real events, the film tells about the brave journey of the pilot Amelia Wren and scientist James Glacier. In 1862, they climbed in a hot air balloon above all their predecessors, dreaming to reveal the secrets of heaven. However, as they gained altitude, their flight became more and more like a struggle for survival ...
If negotiations are successful, Jones will play Amelia Ren, and Redmayne will play her partner Glacier. The director's chair for the project was given to Tom Harper ("Peaky Blinders"), the script was written by Jack Thorne ("How I Love Now").
The acting duo is no stranger to thrilling adventures. Last year, Felicity Jones explored a galaxy far, far away in Rogue One, and Eddie Redmayne interacted with fantastic creatures. Jones is currently working on biopic Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and her colleague is preparing for the new adventures of Newt Scamander.
