Dev Patel to play mathematics genius Ramanujan

'Slumdog Millionaire' star Dev Patel is all set to play Indian mathematics genius Srinivasa Ramanujan in a biopic, to be directed by Matthew Brown.

"The Man Who Knew Infinity: A Life of the Genius Ramanujan" will see Patel portray Ramanujam, who made extraordinary contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory and infinite series.

Born in a rural village in in 1887, Ramanujan was a self-taught mathematician. He spent so much of his time thinking about mathematics that he flunked twice in his college.

In 1912-1913, he sent samples of his theorems to three academics at the University of Cambridge.

G H Hardy recognised his brilliance and invited him to visit and work with him at Cambridge. Ramanujan became a Fellow of the Royal Society and a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge. He died at the age of 32 in 1920.

Brown wrote the script on Ramanujan. The film will be produced by Edward R Pressman and Indian producer Prashita Chaudhary's Cinemorphic Entertainment Company, which is behind Danis Tanovic's project starring Emraan Hashmi.

Prashita is currently in Cannes as the co-producer of Ari Folman's 'The Congress', which opened the Directors' Fortnight.

The part-animation and part live-action film stars Robin Wright, Paul Giamatti, Jon Hamm, Harvey Keitel, Danny Huston and Frances Fisher.

It is adapted from the sci-fi novel 'The Futurological Congress' by Polish writer Stanislaw Lem.
