Actress Mariel Hemingway, whose grandfather was the iconic author Ernest Hemingway, is developing his memoir “A Moveable Feast” as a TV series, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
The project from Village Roadshow Entertainment Group, which is described as a “Hemingway origin story,” also has producers John Goldstone and Marc Rosen on board. THR notes that no outlet is attached yet, nor has a writer been chosen yet.
“The potential series would follow the young Hemingway as a poor but ambitious young journalist and writer in Paris in the 1920s, where he lived with wife Hadley Richardson and encountered the likes of Aleister Crowley; John Dos Passos; F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald; James Joyce; Ezra Pound; and Gertrude Stein — and before he became famous,” THR reports.
In a statement released Tuesday, Mariel Hemingway says: “‘A Moveable Feast’ has been my favorite book since I was 11 years old when my father took me to Paris. While reading the book together, he showed me where Papa lived (and daddy was raised), ate, wrote and dreamed of becoming a great writer. His deep love of my grandmother Hadley and his growing passion for art is an inspiring time at the beginning of his iconic career. I want to reveal on film the coming-of-age story that has captivated readers and burgeoning writers for several decades.”
