Frank Lloyd Wright film in the works

Lionsgate acquires rights to 'Loving Frank'

Lionsgate has acquired screen rights to “Loving Frank,” a historical novel about architect Frank Lloyd Wright by Nancy Horan.

John Burnham Schwartz (“Reservation Road”) has been set to write the script.

Escape Artists partners Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch will produce with Stuart Parr and Allison Sarofim.

“Frank” tells the pre-WWI story of the affair between Wright and Chicago society matron Mamah Borthwick Cheney.

” ‘Loving Frank’ unfolds in a unique historical milieu, yet it speaks to a fundamental aspect of human nature, that you can’t help who you fall in love with,” said Lionsgate production president Alli Shearmur.

Escape Artists is prepping for the release of the Will Smith starrer “Seven Pounds,” produced in partnership with Overbrook Entertainment. ICM repped the book and the scribe.
