Young Einstein Biopic in the Works

Did you know that in his youth Albert Einstein was a bit of a philanderer? I didn't! This just further supports my "smart is sexy" belief.

Speaking of the young Albert Einstein, Lionsgate has inked a deal to produce a portrait of the brainiac as a young man, based on the biography Einstein: His Life and Universe. The story will focus on Einstein from ages 20 to 40, ending with his winning the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921. Variety has more:

"That is when he was at his most prolific, a rebellious character who challenged every theory and was ostracized by the scientific community, but who redefined how we look at the world and how energy plays into everything we do," said [producer] Alan Polsky.

[Producer] Gabe Polsky said the film will also explore Einstein's personal struggles and his romantic relationships. Einstein had a reputation for philandering in his formative years.

So who will play the iconic thinker? I'm betting on Ryan Gosling. Seriously, look at this picture. He could totally pull it off.
