EXCLUSIVE: James Marsh was admittedly an interesting choice to the direct the Stephen and Jane Hawking story, The Theory Of EverythingAlthough he has done plenty of narrative films before such as Shadow Dancer, his biggest fame has come as a documentarian, particularly with his Oscar winning documentary, Man On Wire.

But it just may be that background in remarkable real-life stories that made him the perfect choice to direct The Theory Of Everything. He gave it a certain authenticity and didn’t approach it as a standard biopic, but rather a unique love story between Stephen Hawking and his wife Jane as they faced indescribable odds.
