Wayne Wang To Direct An Einstein Biopic

Wayne Wang (“Maid in Manhattan”) has signed on to direct an Albert Einstein biopic for Hollywood Studios International reports Variety.

Tentatively titled “Einstein”, the project looks at the famed scientist’s personal life including “his struggles with poverty, his dyslexia, his love for music, his relationships with the women in his life, his persecution by the Nazis and his battle to deal with living in the public eye and being under constant scrutiny” says executive producer Koldo Eguren.

Ron Bass (“Rain Man,” “Entrapment”) penned the script while Paul Schiff is producing. Casting will begin in coming weeks and shooting is expected to take place in Germany.
