Posted on

The Gotham Group and producer Kevin Fortuna have optioned film rights to A.E. Hotchner’s best-selling biography Papa Hemingway: A Personal Memoir, according to The Hollywood Reporter, with plans to take it to the big screen. The book explores the last 14 years of the Nobel Prize-winning author’s life, during which he was close friends with Hotchner, who is now 88. Hotchner also wrote the 1962 movie Hemingway’s Adventures of a YoungMan, based on the author’s stories.
