Harry & Caresse: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lasse Hallstrom is in negotiations to helm the Fine Line Features drama Harry & Caresse.

The film, based on a script by Andrea Berloff, is inspired by the true lives of Harry and Caresse Crosby, who influenced the Paris literary scene in the 1920s. The project follows the couple's relationship through drugs, sex and endless parties all in the name of creating art.

Hallstrom, who earned an Oscar nomination for his work on The Cider House Rules, most recently directed the 2001 Miramax drama The Shipping News. He also helmed the upcoming Miramax drama An Unfinished Life, which stars Jennifer Lopez and Robert Redford and is slated for release next year.
