Mariel Hemingway has captured film and TV rights to her late grandfather Ernest Hemingway's memoir A Moveable Feast and plans to make a bigscreen adaptation.
According to Variety, Hemingway has teamed with John Goldstone to produce. They will begin shopping the project immediately.
Mariel Hemingway is the granddaughter of the author and his first wife, Elizabeth Hadley Richardson, whose marital breakup is described in vivid detail in the memoir.
A Moveable Feast, published posthumously to critical acclaim in 1964, covered the author's years as a young man in post-WWI Paris in the 1920s. The prose includes tart portrayals of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein. The memoir was just reissued after being re-edited by Hemingway's grandson, Sean. "It's fascinating to observe my grandfather as a young man, coming of age, before he was known to be what he eventually became, one of the great writers of the 20th century," Mariel Hemingway said.
No production date has been set.
