Eddie Redmayne to play transgender woman

Los Angeles: After undergoing a transformation to play Stephen Hawking in 'The Theory of Everything', Eddie Redmayne is preparing to play a transgender woman who was the first to undergo a gender reassignment surgery in the 1930s.

The film, titled 'The Danish Girl', is based on David Ebershoff's novel of the same name. It is a semi-fictionalized look at the life of Einar Wegener, a Danish painter who changed her name to Lili Elbe after becoming the first man to have sexual reassignment surgery in 1931.
