Jude has signed on to join Oscar winners Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman in “Genius,” which the Michael Grandage Company announced Friday will begin principal photography this fall.

Michael Grandage will make his directorial debut from a script by three-time Oscar nominee John Logan (“The Aviator”).

Based on A. Scott Berg’s award-winning biography “Max Perkins: Editor of Genius,” the film recounts the real-life relationship between literary giant Thomas Wolfe (Law) and renowned editor Max Perkins (Firth), who developed a tender, complex friendship that changed both of their lives forever.

Pre-production will commence in August, and shooting will start on Oct. 13 in the U.K and U.S.
