Director Tom Hooper Reunites with Eddie Redmayne for ‘The Danish Girl’

Les Miserables director Tom Hooper is reuniting with star Eddie Redmayne for the upcoming drama The Danish Girl.

The project will be adapted from the David Ebershoff novel that was inspired by the true story of Danish painter Einar Wegener (Eddie Redmayne) and his wife Gerda. After Einar stood in for a female subject that Gerda was supposed to paint, the painting became incredibly popular, leading to Einar becoming one of the first men ever to undergo a sex change operation in 1930.
