Les Miserables - Eddie Redmayne Favourite To Play Stephen Hawking In Biopic

Les Miserables star Eddie Redmayne has been tipped to portray renowned physicist Stephen Hawking in a new biopic.

The British actor is close to signing on for Theory of Everything, which will document the professor's relationship with his wife, according to Deadline.com.

James Marsh is on board to direct and producers at Working Title are hoping to begin production this autumn (13).

Theory of Everything isn't the only Hawking movie in the works - a U.S. Tv documentary entitled A Brief History of Mine is due to air on the Pbs network later this year (13). It will feature commentary about the physicist's life from his famous pals, including actors Jim Carrey and Benedict Cumberbatch and entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson.
