James Mangold Directing Blood And Champagne, About Notorious Ingrid Bergman Affair

22 June 2015 7:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though he’s currently preoccupied giving Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine an appropriate swan song as the actor prepares to hang up his adamantium claws, James Mangold is already eyeing a very different kind of project. Deadline reports that the versatile helmer will tackle an adaptation of Chris Greenhalgh’s Seducing Ingrid Bergman, possibly to be titled Blood and Champagne, about the heated love affair between actress Bergman and war photographer Robert Capa.

Set in 1945 in post-wwii Paris, the pic will focus on a pivotal time in the Casablanca actress’ life; she would subsequently become a tabloid sensation after launching into an affair with director Roberto Rossellini.

Arash Amel (Grace of Monaco) wrote the script for the historical romance and will also produce.

Blood and Champagne takes the place of drama The Deep Blue Good-By on Mangold’s priority list. That project, starring Christian Bale, was set to kick off production »

James Mangold Will Be 'Seducing Ingrid Bergman'

22 June 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

...and then there were three. Photographer Robert Capa has been a subject that Hollywood has been trying to crack for years. Michael Mann has had a long developing project about the man, Tom Hiddleston and Hayley Atwell were linked to another movie titled "Close Enough," but nothing has been heard about that one since 2013, and now James Mangold has a movie brewing. The Wrap reports that the filmmaker will direct "Seducing Ingrid Bergman." Penned by Arash Amel ("Grace Of Monaco"), the 2014 Black List script is based on the novel by Chris Greenhalgh, and follows Capa's romance with the famed actress. Here's the book synopsis:  June 1945. When Ingrid Bergman walks into the lobby of the Ritz hotel in Paris, war photographer Robert Capa is enchanted. From the moment he slips a mischievous invitation to dinner under her door, the two find themselves helplessly attracted. Played out against the cafés and nightclubs of post-war Paris and the. »

James Mangold Directing Ingrid Bergman Romance Drama

21 June 2015 6:05 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

James Mangold is a director who likes to hop among genres: he’s tackled dramas of all stripes, Westerns, biopics and the superheroic likes of The Wolverine. He’s blending a couple of those for a potential future project, lining up an adaptation of Chris Greenhalgh’s book Seducing Ingrid Bergman.Arash Amel has written the script for the embryonic film, which chronicles the passionate, secretive romance between the iconic actress and noted war photographer Robert Capa in post-World War II Paris, just before the Cold War kicked in. The script has been floating around since at least 2013, and follows the period where Bergman’s image began to shift from her wholesome earlier days to being denounced by the Us Senate for loose morals (truly something of an ironic juxtaposition, there.) According to Deadline, Mangold has wanted to call the eventual film Blood And Champagne, but he may not get his wish, »

'Grace of Monaco' screenwriter dismantles the film in live Tweet session

28 May 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You might remember "Grace of Monaco." A Grace Kelly biopic directed by Olivier Dahan ("La Vie en Rose") with Nicole Kidman in the lead and Tim Roth as her Prince Rainier, the film was picked up for distribution by The Weinstein Company and landed an opening night slot at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. It seemed like a perfect combination of material and talent, and a possible awards player. But it ended up panned on the Croisette and destined for a premiere on the Lifetime television channel here in the Us. Earlier this week, the film's screenwriter, Arash Amel, took to Twitter to live-Tweet the Lifetime airing and, well, he had a lot to say. "The purpose of this live Tweet is to correct the record, an explanation, an apology and most of all a bit of lighthearted fun," he wrote, tagging each of his Tweets with the #GOMFacts hashtag. If »

‘Grace of Monaco’ Screenwriter Live-Tweets Troubled Film’s Lifetime Debut

26 May 2015 4:42 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nicole Kidman’s Grace Kelly biopic, “Grace of Monaco” has had a tumultuous journey to the screen: initially generating Oscar buzz after being picked up by the Weinstein Co. in 2013, before skipping theaters and eventually premiering on Lifetime on Memorial Day.

Set in 1962, the film takes place six years after Kelly married Prince Rainier III of Monaco, and finds the princess longing to return to her acting career. The film received a critical drubbing at its Cannes premiere in 2014, with Variety’s Scott Foundas calling it a “cornball melodrama.”

In an attempt to shed light on the film’s behind-the-scenes turmoil, screenwriter Arash Amel live-tweeted the entire premiere.

“The purpose of this live tweet is to correct the record, an explanation, an apology and most of all a bit of light hearted fun,” Amel tweeted. “Also consider this to be the writer’s dvd commentary.”

From the festival circuit to your couch on a lazy Thursday afternoon.

That is the course for Nicole Kidman’s Grace of Monaco, which will sees it’s U.S. premiere on Lifetime after opening the Cannes Film Festival a year ago. Deadline reported the news on Tuesday.

While the film hit theaters (to tepid responses by critics) overseas, it had yet to open in American theaters. It was also in the midst of controversy after The Weinstein Company and director Olivier Dahan fought of cuts. Deadline mentions that it is unclear whether Lifetime will use the cut by Dahan or Weinstein’s. The director’s cut was used in the premiere at Cannes.

In an interview with Deadline at Sundance this year, Harvey Weinstein hinted at the possibility that the film could find life on TV rather than a theatrical run. “The script we signed on for was like The King’s Speech, »
