A Family 'Feast'

Mariel Hemingway to adapt her grandfather Ernest Hemingway’s book into film

Posted on

Does the granddaughter also rise? Mariel Hemingway will make her directorial debut with the film version of grandpapa Ernest‘s A Moveable Feast, a fictionalized memoir published posthumously in 1964. ”I’ve been working on the script for several years,” says the actress. ”I really feel this is something I have a vision for. The story’s about my grandfather in Paris in the ’20s. My father took me to Paris when I was 11 to [visit] all the places [Ernest] wrote about.” There’s no casting yet, but Hemingway hopes for a prestrike Paris shoot this spring.
