The 2019 Toronto Film Festival on Tuesday unveiled another slew of star-driven titles for its 44th edition, including red carpet premieres at Roy Thomson Hall for Tom Harper’s The Aeronauts and Giuseppe Capotondi’s The Burnt Orange Heresy.

Toronto will give Amazon Studios’ ballooning adventure The Aeronauts, which reunites Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne, a Canadian premiere before the period adventure debuts in a select number of theaters Dec. 6 and debuts two weeks later on Amazon Prime.

EXCLUSIVE: Amazon Studios is shifting its anticipated Eddie Redmayne-Felicity Jones pic The Aeronauts deeper into awards season, from October 25 to December 6, we can reveal.

In a potentially telling move about Amazon’s future direction, the company is also collapsing the intended theatrical window for the ballooning disaster film. Instead of a traditional theatrical release, including a previously agreed one-week Imax commitment, the film will get a short stateside theatrical release via Amazon, then will launch on Amazon Prime Video on December 20 in what we hear is a bid to maximize in-home holiday eyeballs.

EXCLUSIVE: The Theory of Everything won Eddie Redmayne a Best Actor Oscar two years ago and Felicity Jones earned a well-deserved nomination. Now, the two actors are talking about reteaming on The Aeronauts for Amazon Studios.

Deadline hears that they are in talks now on a period action adventure based on true events about two 19th century hot air balloonists that would be directed and produced by Tom Harper (Peaky Blinders, War & Peace). Jones would play balloon pilot Amelia Wren and Redmayne would be scientist James Glaisher. In 1862, they embarked on an extraordinary journey to discover the secrets of the heavens. In the process, they fly higher in an open balloon than anyone ever has – either before or since. They make breathtaking discoveries, but as they ascend to the highest reaches of the atmosphere, they are forced into an epic fight for survival.

The project is being produced by Mandeville Films’ Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman, who are coming off the weekend sleeper hit Wonder. The script is by Jack Thorne, who wrote the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, based on a J.K. Rowling story. He’s also adapted Philip Pullman’s fantasy novel trilogy His Dark Materials for BBC One. Thorne also was a writer on Wonder.

The project will shoot in London with a Spring 2018 start.
