Giovanni to play Einstein

Giovanni Ribisi has been cast as a young Albert Einstein in an upcoming biopic. "I don't know if I should say, but I will, finally, talk about it," Ribisi said while on a press junket for Perfect Stranger. "Einstein. I'm going to be doing Albert Einstein, with Liliana Cavani, who did the Charlotte Rampling film from the 70s called The Night Porter. It's great and the script is really great, and I'm really excited about it." The biopic will begin production in July in Italy, Barcelona and "at Princeton, of course," Ribisi said. "It's a movie that focuses on his relationship with his first wife, Mileva Maric, and I guess it's from the inception of that relationship to the end of his life." That's a pretty tall order.
