Redmayne, who recently starred as the student revolutionary Marius in the movie "Les Misérables," will play the famed physicist who suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Directed by Academy Award winner James Marsh, the Working Title film will focus on the relationship between Hawking and his wife.
