Fassbender & Firth Take on GENIUS

Production is set for 2014.

It has been announced that Michael Fassbender (‘Prometheus,’ ‘Shame’) and Colin Firth (‘The King’s Speech’) are set to star in the John Logan-penned real life drama ‘Genius.’

Based on A. Scott Berg’s biography ‘Max Perkins: Editor of Genius’ the film centres on the relationship between literary giant Thomas Wolfe (Fassbender) and his long-time editor Max Perkins (Firth).

One of the most respected and well-known literary editors of all time, Perkins discovered such iconic novelists as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway.

Filming is scheduled to begin 2014 with Michael Grandage attached to direct.
