Not many people had a bigger breakout than Eddie Redmayne in 2012, and it’s proved by the caliber of the films he’s signed onto following his dazzling turn as Marius in ‘Les Miserables’.

It is being reported that he has joined the cast of Leo Tolstoy’s ‘War and Peace’ adaptation, which will be produced by BBC Wales. The film was last seen on television 40 years ago, and is considered incredibly difficult to translate to film because of the length of the novel [1500 pages] as well as the complicated and intertwining love stories set within Russia in the earlier part of the 19th century.  
 
Of course, Redmayne has experience with epic films translated from 1000+ novels with love stories, set in the backdrop of war – after all, the same difficulties were present in the adaptation of ‘Les Miserables’. Victor Hugo’s novel was considered un-adaptable until the producers of the musical made a hit show out of it, and the recent film version has also garnered praise and critical acclaim.

Redmayne’s upcoming films also include ‘Jupiter Ascending’, a sci-fi epic from the directors of the Matrix trilogy. If that does well, in addition to ‘War and Peace’, Redmayne will likely cement his status among the A-list in Hollywood.
