TORONTO (AP) — As soon as Eddie Redmayne (pic below) read the script for The Aeronauts, he knew whom his co-star should be: His Theory of Everything co-star Felicity Jones. “I read it with Felicity in mind and the second I finished it, I called her up and I said, ‘I’ll do this if you do’,” the star said. “And we sort of made that very quick decision.”
Jones said reuniting with Redmayne — who won an Oscar for the movie — “felt really natural”.
“But the thing that pushed it was that the parts were so good,” she said.
“They were brilliantly written. It feel more of an adventure coming back together and it made the film feel like it was part of a narrative, obviously pivoting from Theory of Everything.”
