Washington (ANI): A film on the influential years of 20th century scientist Albert Einstein is underway. 'Liongate" has acquired worldwide life rights to the theoretical physicist, mathematician Einstein to develop a feature film on him. Walter Isaacson, who penned biography "Einstein: His Life and Universe," has also given rights to the company.
Alan and Gabe Polsky, the producers of the film said that the focus of it would be the early life of Einstein from ages 20 to 40, ending around the time when he won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921. "That is when he was at his most prolific, a rebellious character who challenged every theory and was ostracized by the scientific community, but who redefined how we look at the world and how energy plays into everything we do," Variety quoted Polsky, as saying. Polsky also said that the film would also explore Einstein's personal struggles and his romantic relations.
