Benedict Cumberbatch & Claire Foy to Star in 'Louis Wain' Biopic

Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy are taking on a new project!

The 43-year-old actor and the 35-year-old actress will star in the upcoming biopic Louis Wain, Deadline reported on Tuesday (July 23).

Louis Wain was an English artist who lived from 1860 to 1939, best known for his drawings of large-eyed cats and kittens. He may have suffered from schizophrenia, although it is disputed.

Here’s a plot summary: “At the age of 23, Wain (Cumberbatch) married his sisters’ governess, Emily Richardson (Foy), who was ten years his senior. The marriage was considered somewhat scandalous at the time due to the age difference. He moved with her to Hampstead in north London but Emily soon began to suffer from breast cancer and died three years into their marriage. Prior to Emily’s death, Wain discovered the subject that would define his career. During her illness, Emily was comforted by their pet cat Peter, a stray black and white kitten they had rescued after hearing him mewing in the rain one night. Despite his popularity, Wain suffered financial difficulty throughout his life. He remained responsible for supporting his mother and sisters and had little business sense. He often sold his drawings outright, retaining no rights over their reproduction.”

The movie will be directed by Will Sharpe, and filming begins on August 10 in London, United Kingdom.

“I am thrilled by the prospect of playing the courageous, playful spirit that is Louis Wain and to be producing such a special film. I have admired Will’s work for several years through Flowers and from the moment we first met, knew he was the perfect person to bring Louis’ inspirational and odyssean story to life. Together we plan to bring audiences a sincerely uplifting, playful, thought provoking tale of resilience, creativity and the enduring power of love,” said Benedict in a statement.
