Los Angeles: Model-actress Amber Heard is in talks to join 'The King's Speech' director Tom Hooper's 'The Danish Girl' for the strong supporting role of Oola opposite Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander.
The film sees Oscar-winning director Hooper re-teaming with 'Working Title's' Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner. The trio previously worked together with much success on 'Les Miserables', reported Deadline.
Inspired by the novel written by David Ebershoff, 'Danish Girl' is a love story about Danish painters Einar Wegener and his wife Gerda. In 1930, Wegener was one of the first men ever to undergo operations to become a woman.
Lucinda Coxon adapted the screenplay. Gail Mutrux developed the film and will produce through her Pretty Pictures banner alongside Anne Harrison and Linda Reisman.
