Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones are in talks for The Aeronauts for Amazon Studios. The project will reunite the two actors following their success on The Theory Of Everything a couple of years back, a film which won Redmayne the Best Actor award and saw Jones nominated also.
The Aeronauts is a period action adventure based on true events about two 19th century hot air balloonists that would be directed and produced by Tom Harper. Jones would play balloon pilot Amelia Wren and 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 – either before or since.
