Stephen Hawking to Star in, Narrate Science Pic -- in IMAX 3D!

by | October 16, 2006 | Comments

World-renowned scientist Stephen Hawking is making another leap into cinema, and this time the pic will bring him and his theories into the third dimension!

The author of "A Brief History of Time" will narrate and star in "Beyond the Horizon," a half-fiction, half-documentary project about his theories of the origin of the universe. He’ll get a hand from snazzy computer-generated sequences that will help explain the complexities of astrophysics to theatergoers.

Hawking is no stranger to showbiz, having appeared numerous times playing himself on television shows like "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and "The Simpsons," and in a documentary based on his book, "A Brief History of Time" (1991). He also starred in a miniseries for PBS, "Stephen Hawking’s Universe," in which he explained many of his Big Bang theories, much like he will in the upcoming IMAX film.

From the Times Online:

"Leonard Mlodinow, a physicist and former scriptwriter on ‘Star Trek,’ is working with Hawking on the film project.

Mlodinow said that it would also include dramatised interviews with Einstein and other famous physicists such as Richard Feynman. "It will be like ‘Groundhog Day’ meets ‘Star Trek,’" he said."
