First look trailer: Eddie Redmayne in The Danish Girl
British actor Eddie Redmayne looks like he could be Oscar-bound yet again with his upcoming drama, The Danish Girl.
The Theory of Everything award-winner will play artist Lili Elbe, previously known as Einar Wegener, who was one of the world’s first known recipients of gender confirmation surgery in 1930.
Redmayne has reunited with his Les Misérables director, Tom Hooper, who also directed 2010’s multi-award winning drama The King’s Speech.
Meanwhile, Redmayne will star alongside Alicia Vikander (The Man from U.N.C.L.E), who will take on the role of Elbe’s wife Gerda Wegener, and also Amber Heard, Ben Wishaw, and Matthias Schoenaerts.
The Danish Girl will hit US cinemas on November 27th, ahead of its UK release on New Year’s Day.
