It may seem like there are a ton of new projects hitting this week, and that’s because the American Film Market is getting under way. That’s where indies go to find financing and distribution partnerships, and so it’s one of a couple big marketplace events where producers announce new films. One of the most promising so far is Genius, which has changed up its cast a bit.
Once meant to star Sean Penn, the film will now pair Michael Fassbender and Colin Firth for the first time, in a film about the relationship between author Thomas Wolfe and his long-time editor Max Perkins. In the days where editors often seem more like proofreaders than true literary guiding lights, Maxwell Perkins remains famous for his work with F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, and Thomas Wolfe, among other writers.
