Only sky is the limit for Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne!

The Theory of Everything co-stars teamed up after four years, for an epic adventure biopic called The Aeronauts. The first photo from the upcoming movie is here and it seems they’ve taken this reunion 2,000 feet high.

The Aeronauts centers on pilot Amelia Wren and scientist James Glaisher. They go on a balloon expedition, with the hope they’ll fly higher than anyone ever did. Couple’s adventure quickly turns into an epic fight for survival and pushes them to the edge of existence. According to producer Todd Lieberman, the actors were ready to take things to the next level and face everything their characters did.

“A top priority for us on The Aeronauts is authenticity. With that in mind, we intend to do as much balloon filming in the sky as the weather will allow. This image was taken after we launched Felicity and Eddie 2,000 feet in the air, performing their scripted scene, while a helicopter captured it all.” said Lieberman.

Before joining this project, Jones and Redmayne starred opposite each other in The Theory of Everything. They both received an Oscar nomination for their masterful portrayals of Stephen and Jane Hawking, and Redmayne even went home with the coveted Best Actor award in hand.
