Although Michael Fassbender was announced for the role in 2012, Deadline now reports that Jude Law will instead star opposite Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman in director Michael Grandage's Genius.

Based on the National Book Award winning biography "Max Perkins: Editor of Genius," by A. Scott Berg (adapted by John Logan), Genius centers on the real-life relationship between literary giant Thomas Wolfe (Law) and renowned editor Max Perkins (Firth). Finding fame and critical success at a young age, Wolfe is a blazing talent with a larger-than-life personality to match. Perkins is one of the most respected and well-known literary editors of all time, discovering such iconic novelists as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. Wolfe and Perkins develop a tender, complex friendship. Transformative and irrepressible, this friendship will change the lives of these brilliant, but very different men forever.

Genius will be produced by James Bierman for the Michael Grandage Company (MGC) . Bierman served as Executive Producer at Donmar and co-formed MGC with Grandage.
