Eddie Redmayne looks preppy chic as he enjoys break from shooting and promoting new films in NYC

It is truly a busy time on the career front for Eddie Redmayne.

In recent weeks, the British-born actor has been shooting a new film and promoting his latest release, The Aeronauts, all while securing another role as Newt Scamander in the third installment in the Fantastic Beasts franchise.

And on Wednesday he was on the move, trying to keep up with his busy movie star lifestyle in New York City.

The Academy Award-winner was seen rushing out of a hotel, looking all business, dressed conservatively casual in tan pants with a navy blue jacket.

To help stave off the chilly temperatures, he wore a sweater and stylishly pulled the collar of his coat upwards.

Redmayne, 37, rounded out his ensemble with a pair of white sneakers and had his hair brushed towards the front and side.

At one point, Redmayne met up with a blonde woman who appeared to be friend or work colleague.

The two chatted briefly as they moved down the bustling street and eventually went on their way.

Redmayne has been shooting the upcoming crime comedy film, The Trial Of The Chicago 7, alongside Sacha Baron Cohen, in Chicago, New Jersey and Toronto.

The film, which has an ensemble cast including Kelvin Harrison Jr., William Hurt, Frank Langella, Michael Keaton and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, has been tabbed to premiere in September 2020.

The biographical adventure film hit theaters in the UK two weeks ago, and is slated to drop in the US December 6, 2019.

The studio set a November 12, 2021 release date back in April, but that could be pushed back further.
