Wayne Wang (“The Joy Luck Club”) is directing a biopic on frizzy-haired genius Albert Einstein.
“Einstein” is based on a script by Ron Bass (“Rainman”) and will likely shoot in Germany and other areas of Europe.
According to Deadline, the pic “chronicles the true inspirational story of the trials, tragedies and vindication of the single-most celebrated scientist of the 20th century. Torn between the burdens of a family and his restless pursuit of unlocking the mysteries of the universe, he not only achieved unparalleled stature as a genius but he also changed the world forever – at no small cost to himself and those around him.”
There’s really only one man right for Einstein….
