Stephen Hawking actuara en una pelicula que tratara sobre sus Teorias del Universo.
London- British physicist Stephen Hawking hopes to soon bring his theories on the origin of the universe to the silver screen, the Sunday Times reported. Hawking is to play himself in the film Beyond the Horizon, in which he explains his hypotheses on the Big Bang theory of creation and on black holes, the Times said.
Hawking has the lead role in the film in which he, as narrator, explains cosmological concepts, the report said.
The scientist is currently working on the script, which revolves around his theories, with physicist and former Star Trek scriptwriter Leonard Mlodinow.
No date for the beginning of filming has been given.
Since 1963, Hawking has suffered from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), an incurable disease of the central nervous system that causes progressive muscular atrophy.
Since 1968, the 64-year-old scientist has required a wheelchair and can only talk with the aid of a computer since 1985.
