CANNES — Mena Suvari, Jack Huston, Caterina Murino and Richard E. Grant will star in “The Garden of Eden,” an adaptation of Ernest Hemingway’s novel to be directed by John Irvin.
Pic, which is being sold internationally by Omega Entertainment, starts shooting in June at the Ciudad de la Luz studio in Alicante, Spain. It’s produced by Tim Lewiston of London-based Berwick Street Prods.
Set in the jazz age, it’s the story of a successful young American novelist, previously an aviator during WWI, who embarks on an extended honeymoon across Europe with his wife (Suvari). But when she brings in a sultry Italian girl (Murino) to spice things up with erotic games, their relationship comes under pressure.
