FOCUS FEATURES TO RELEASE WORKING TITLE’S THEORY OF EVERYTHING DOMESTICALLY IN NOVEMBER; OSCAR WINNER JAMES MARSH DIRECTS, EDDIE REDMAYNE STARS AS STEPHEN HAWKING OPPOSITE FELICITY JONES
SANTA MONICA, April 10, 2014 – Working Title Films’ Theory of Everything will be released domestically by Focus Features in exclusive engagements beginning Friday, November 7th, 2014. Focus CEO Peter Schlessel made the announcement today.
Academy Award winner James Marsh (Man on Wire) helms the romantic drama starring Eddie Redmayne (of Working Title’s blockbuster Les Misérables) as theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, world-famous as the author of A Brief History of Time, opposite Gotham Independent Film Award winner Felicity Jones (Like Crazy). The movie explores the excitement of the 1960s for Stephen as he studies at Cambridge University. At the dawn of a brilliant life’s work, he falls passionately in love with arts student Jane Wilde. Their relationship leads him through personal and scientific challenges and breakthroughs, and as his world opens up he opens up the entire world to new ways of seeing. Jane’s memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen inspired the new film; the screenplay is by Anthony McCarten, who is producer on the film with Lisa Bruce (producer of Working Title’s Mary and Martha) and Working Title co-chairs Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner.
The cast of Theory of Everything also includes two-time Academy Award nominee Emily Watson and David Thewlis (Harry Potter). The creative team also includes cinematographer Benoît Delhomme (Lawless), production designer John Paul Kelly (Working Title’sAbout Time), costume designer Steven Noble (Under the Skin), and film editor Jinx Godfrey (marking her seventh feature with Mr. Marsh).
Mr. Schlessel commented, “This extraordinary love story between one of the greatest minds of our time, Stephen Hawking, and his first wife Jane is profoundly moving and inspirational, with heart and humor. Under the dynamic direction of James Marsh, Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones deliver performances of stunning emotional power.”
