Elijah as Einstein: "Picasso at The Lapin Agile"

There aren't too many details on this movie yet but it seems that Elijah is possibly going to play Einstein in a new movie called Picasso at The Lapin Agile.

Toby Maguire was originally cast for the role but dropped out.
From what I can gather Ryan Phillippe is playing Picasso!

There are more details here:
http://www.themovieinsider.com/m907/picasso-at-the-lapin-agine/
and
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,64258,00.html

It seems strange the Elijah's never mentioned it but I think the project has been on hold for a couple of years.

..... Steve Martin, Kevin Kline, Ryan Phillippe, Elijah Wood, Jason Biggs, Hayden Christensen.... what a good cast!!!!!!!

If Elijah plays Einstein does he have to speak like Einstein? With a German accent!!

Wow!  I think that would be terrific if Elijah is doing this.  Can't wait to hear more.

I'd love to see him in this movie, and I know he's very versatile and talented, but..... I really don't want to see him acting as Albert Einstein. Just in my opinion that kind of crosses the line when it comes to a stretch. Not like it's absolutely undoable or anything, but I can imagine an older actor who's German and looks at least somewhat like Albert Einstein filling the part a lot better, and...as much as I cheer Elijah on for doing all sorts of different parts, I just don't think that Einstein's for him. If you get what I mean.

But we'll just have to see what happens in time...

I've seen quite a few references posted about this potential movie and several included him in the cast.  But I don't recall seeing one that said he was going to have the Einstein part.  Are we sure he will, in fact, be playing the role of Einstein and not some other role?

I was actually wondering about that too, Yeux.  The couple of articles list him but without specifying the role.  And, if it is young Einstein, it is not as much of a stretch.  Does anyone know how old Einstein and Picasso are supposed to be in the play?

I believe the play takes place in 1904, so I guess we could google Einstein, find out when he was born, then figure how old he would have been in 1904.

Born in 1879 apparently.  So, 25 in 1904.  Which sounds like the right age for Elijah, huh?

Picasso at The Lapin Agile is a play written by Steven Martin.  The role of Einstein has always been played by a young actor, so I gather from this that Einstein is quite young when he meets Picasso.

If Elijah does get to play this role in the movie version then I think he would be brilliant in it!

This film sounds great - I really hope it comes through and that Elijah gets a part... but it is a bit strange that he's never mentioned it before
