Эдди Редмэйн сыграет адвоката в исторической драме

Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne, which in a short time we will see in the next film adaptation of the book the authorship of JK Rowling’s “Fantastic creatures and their habitats” — is taken for a new job.

British actor suggested to play a lawyer in the historical drama “the Last days of night”, which deals with Director Morten Tyldum (“the imitation Game”, “bounty Hunters”).

Writing a script will do Graham Moore, who won the award “Oscar” for “the imitation Game” with Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role.

At the moment about the “Last days of night” is little known.

The picture tells of the confrontation between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse in the struggle for America DC or AC that went down in history as the “War of currents”.

Redmayne will play a lawyer who made a career working for Edison.

Start filming is January 2017. The film is scheduled for release in the autumn of the same year.
