Darwin coming to the big screen in "Creation"

Real-life couple Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly will be playing Charles and Emma Darwin in Creation, a biopic based on the book Annie's Box. From THR:
Bettany will play the British father of evolutionary theory, and Connelly will play his wife, Emma, in the big-screen take on the life of the controversial "On the Origin of Species" author.
Amiel's film portrays Darwin as a man torn between his love for his deeply religious wife and his own growing belief in a world where God has no place. The scientist finds himself caught in a struggle between faith and reason, love and truth.
This film is going to be so adorable with these two--like looking at a gossip magazine, but with Bettany wearing a giant beard. They should have a baby or two to promote it.
