Eddie and Felicity In Talks To Pair Again For ‘The Aeronauts’

Felicity and Eddie in The Theory of Everything

Felicity and Eddie at the SAG Awards in 2015 

Deadline reported, that the two actors are talking about reteaming on 'The Aeronauts' for Amazon Studios. The period action adventure based on true events about two 19th century hot air balloonists. The movie would be directed by Tom Harper (Peaky Blinders, War & Peace). Felicity Jones (Eddie's co-star in The Theory of Everything) would play balloon pilot Amelia Wren and Eddie 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. 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. The script is by Jack Thorne, who won Olivier Award for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, based on a J.K. Rowling story, and adapted Philip Pullman’s fantasy novel trilogy His Dark Materials for BBC One...

The project will shoot in London with a Spring 2018 start.

Between 1862 and 1866, usually with Henry Tracey Coxwell as his co-pilot, Glaisher made
numerous ascents to measure the temperature and humidity of the atmosphere at its highest levels.
His ascent on 5 September 1862 broke the world record for altitude, but he passed out around
8,800 metres before a reading could be taken. One of the pigeons making the trip with him died.[7]
Estimates suggest that he rose to more than 9,500 metres and as much as 10,900 metres above
sea-level.[8][9][10] (source: Wikipedia)
