Collider reported, that "Eddie Redmayne is attached to star in the untitled
Cambridge Analytica movie for Joe and Anthony Russo's company AGBO
Films, which is in talks with two-time Oscar-winner Peter Farrelly to direct.
A representative for AGBO had no comment.
Avengers: Endgame scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely wrote
the script, and the project is financed and ready to go into production, though
just like last year when we reported that Matt Shakman was in talks to direct,
it's still anyone's guess as to when that will actually be. The project was
initially slated to be directed by David Gordon Green.
Redmayne is poised to play Christopher Wylie, the pink-haired data consultant
who hatched the idea of Cambridge Analytica, a data analytics firm that illegally
harvested the personal data of 87 million Facebook users in order to influence
Donald Trump's presidential victory and the Brexit vote. Wylie's guilty conscience
led him to become a whistleblower and tell his story, both in court and in the press,
and it was an article in The Guardian by Carole Cadwalladr that was acquired by
AGBO and serves as the catalyst for this project.
The Russo brothers are producing with their AGBO partner Mike Larocca, and
the Cambridge Analytica project represents an edgy departure for the company,
as well as screenwriters Markus and McFeely. 30WEST is executive producing
and shopping the Cambridge Analytica movie with AGBO, and several
distributors are said to have already expressed interest in the prestige project."

the real person Eddie is poised to play.

I was hoping Eddie Redmayne and his wife Hannah attend Wimbledon
this year, and here they are. They arrived for Day 9, the much-anticipated
mens' quarter-final day, and took their seats at Centre Court.
Eddie looked handsome in a cream Ralph Lauren suit.
New photos! (via whatnew2day.com)

Some connections: Eddie's first theatre job was one workhouse boy in the
Sam Mendes (7) directed 'Oliver'. Eddie played the main character in the
BBC miniseries 'Birdsong', based on the novel by Sebastian Faulks (3).

@DiogoAD (on Twitter) met Eddie yesterday.
Eddie Redmayne is in London. He moved back after
he finished filming The Good Nurse about 3 weeks ago.
A Londoner fan tweeted on June 24 that saw him.
You find great photoshoot outtakes
There are some new-old photos I haven't seen before
They are wonderful 😍 Thanks Ali!

I was in Székesfehérvár (Hungary) yesterday and visited some filming locations of Birdsong.
They used some CGI with the background to make this Hungarian city look like
Amiens, but the street and the houses look almost the same as 10 years ago when
Eddie Redmayne was here filming scenes for the miniseries. Since then some houses
have been renovated in their original form. This area is a part of the historic city center.
I wish I had known him at the time. I could have gone to the shoot, I could
even have applied as an extra. This city is only about 60 km from where I live.
The first time I've seen Eddie on Tv was later that year when I watched
The Pillars of the Earth.
And here you can see this part of the film.

Update Nov. 22, 2021: Yesterday, on my way back from London I visited
another filming location, the Művész kávéház (Artist's Café) in Budapest.
