Well, we’ve just found the next great film reboot, and we’re 1,000% certain it’ll be a huge hit: Eddie Redmayne playing Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany‘s.

Don’t believe that’s a great idea? Then you’ve got to stop what you’re doing and watch Redmayne absolutely slay it during a reading of the script. W Magazine has recently been asking some of our favorite actors and actresses to give a new life to some of our favorite movie scenes. Seth Rogen read for Cher in Clueless and it changed our lives. Now, Redmayne musing about the fact that when he gets sad, he goes to Tiffany’s.

This 2-minuet clip perfectly proves why Redmayne already has one Oscar to his name, and is up for another one this year. If you need to compare his acting chops to the magnificent Audrey Hepburn, you can watch the same clip from the movie here.

Now, ball’s in your court Hollywood. How soon until we can expect Redmayne’s full take on this classic?
