Deadline is reporting that Alicia Vikander is Tom Hooper’s choice
to star opposite Eddie Redmayne in
The Danish Girl. The Lucinda Coxon-scripted adaptation of the David Ebershoff novel is inspired by the story of Danish painter Einar Wegener and his wife, and the love they shared even as he became the first man to undergo a sex change operation in 1931.
Alicia is closing a deal to star with Michael Fassbender in the Derek Cianfrance-directed adaptation of the M.L. Stedman novel The Light Between Oceans for DreamWorks. Her reps are right now working out the details so that Vikander can go from one film right into the other starting in the fall.
