Deadline are reporting that Felicity is due to sign on to new film A Monster Calls:
Felicity Jones is making a deal to star in A Monster Calls, the Juan Antonio Bayona-directed adaptation of the Patrick Ness children’s fantasy novel. I’ve heard that she will play the character of Mum, and that the filmmakers are courting Liam Neeson for the role of the Monster, though I am not sure that will result in a deal. The film tells the tale of a young boy who attempts to deal with his mother’s illness and the bullying of classmates by escaping into a fantastical world of monsters and fairy tales that deal with courage, loss and faith. Ness wrote the book based on an original idea by the late Siobhan Dowd, and Ness and illustrator Jim Kay won Britain’s Carnegie and Greenaway Medals for the book which Ness has turned into a script.
The film will be released in fall 2016 and it’s next for Bayona, who helmed The Impossible. Focus is releasing domestically, Universal Pictures International in Spain, and Lionsgate International throughout the rest of the world. Exec producing is River Road’s Bill Pohlad and Mitch Horwits, Participant’s Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King, and Lionsgate’s Patrick Wachsberger.

Focus Features will distribute Stephen Hawking biopic Theory of Everything, setting it for a platform release beginning November 7, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Working Title film stars Les Miserables actor Eddie Redmayne and Like Crazy star Felicity Jones as his wife. The romantic drama, which focuses on the relationship between Hawking and his wife, traces Hawking’s life from the 1960s as he studies at Cambridge University through his scientific breakthroughs and the early development of his ALS.
Jane Hawking’s memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life With Stephen was used as inspiration for the project, which is directed by James Marsh from a screenplay by Anthony McCarten. McCarten is also producing with Lisa Bruce (producer of Working Title’s Mary and Martha) and Working Title co-chairs Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner.
The film, which will expand into more theaters on Nov. 14 and Nov. 21, also stars Emily Watson and David Thewlis.
“This extraordinary love story between one of the greatest minds of our time, Stephen Hawking, and his first wife Jane is profoundly moving and inspirational, with heart and humor. Under the dynamic direction of James Marsh, Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones deliver performances of stunning emotional power,” said Focus CEO Peter Schlessel in a statement.

A new, three minute trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has just surfaced online, and it looks as though we may have the briefest glimpse of Felicity at around the 1.16 mark – what do you think? I wish we knew more about her role in the film! The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits cinemas on April 18, 2014, with two more instalments planned for May 2016 and May 2018.
What was the first movie you ever saw?
The Addams Family. It started a lifelong crush on Wednesday Addams and Christina Ricci. I like an outsider. I used to go [to the cinema] as a treat with my mum and brother – we’d have pizza – and we’d discuss the film in the car on the way home.
What was the movie that inspired you to go into movies?
Hal Hartley’s Trust. It was at university in Oxford, and there was this amazing DVD store. We’d rent things all the time, thinking we were very cool watching Tarkovsky. Trust had humour and melancholy. I like the fusion of those.
What was the last movie you saw that reminded you of your childhood?
The Witches. That terrified me. We had a neighbour who always wore gloves and my brother and I were convinced she was a witch for ages.
