Michael Fassbender and Colin Firth get together to star in Genius
Respected gentleman and eye candy of old and new, Michael Fassbender and Colin Firth will be taking the lead in GENIUS.
The film is based on the National Book Award winning biography Max Perkins: Editor of Genius by A. Scott Berg. Michael Grandage will direct the adaptation from John Logan (SKYFALL, THE AVIATOR).
GENIUS centers on, "the real-life relationship between literary giant Thomas Wolfe (Fassbender) and renowned editor Max Perkins (Firth). Finding fame and critical success at a young age, Wolfe is a blazing talent with a larger-than-life personality to match. Perkins is one of the most respected and well-known literary editors of all time, discovering such iconic novelists as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. Wolfe and Perkins develop a tender, complex friendship. Transformative and irrepressible, this friendship will change the lives of these brilliant, but very different men forever."
Principal photography will begin early 2014.
