Mandolin plucks Farr tome

Mandoki, Polk in 'Love'

Luis Mandoki and Mimi Polk Gitlin’s Mandolin Entertainment have closed a deal with Julio Bove’s Bosco Entertainment to develop Evelyn Farr’s 1995 book “The Untold Love Story: Marie-Antoinette and Count Fersen.”

Farr is adapting the screenplay, with Mandoki to direct if schedule permits.

Using correspondence and documents, Farr’s book details the love affair between Marie-Antoinette and the Swedish count Axel Fersen. Their romance included Fersen’s efforts to save Antoinette, his own death as a victim of court conspiracies and the revolutionary and political turmoil of the era.

Producers Gitlin, Mandoki and Bove hope to shoot the project in Prague and France.

Bove, who brought the project to Mandolin, did his thesis at USC’s Peter Stark Producing Program in 2000 on “Marie Antoinette.”

Mandoki and Gitlin most recently collaborated on “Trapped” (aka “24 Hours”), which will be released by Columbia Pictures Aug. 23.
