The drama, co-produced and penned by John Logan (“The Aviator”), is based on A. Scott Berg’s biography “Max Perkins: Editor of Genius” about the real-life relationship between literary giant Thomas Wolfe (Law) and renowned editor Max Perkins (Firth).
Law replaced Michael Fassbender, who was attached to play Wolfe when the film was announced at the American Film Market in 2012.
“We are thrilled to have assembled such an extraordinary team around us as we move forward with this project, and we can’t wait to begin filming,” Grandage and Bierman said in a statement.
Shooting will take place in the U.K. and U.S. pre-production will start in August 2014.
