Amber Entertainment visits ‘Paris’

Film to adapt McClain's novel on Hemingways

Amber Entertainment is heading to Paris, snapping up rights to Paula McClain’s “The Paris Wife: A Novel,” centered on the relationship between Ernest Hemingway and his wife Hadley during the 1920s in Paris.

Amber’s Ileen Maisel is producing and teaming with Julian Fellowes (“Gosford Park”), who is exec producing. Amber’s tapped London-based Isabelle Dupuy to adapt from McClain’s tome, which details the Hemingways’ time in Paris when they become part of the fabled “Lost Generation” — including Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound and F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald — and face a marital crisis.

Amber’s approach has been to acquire and convert recognizable properties such as novels by Gerald Browne, Judy Blume and Jackie Collins into films, with the authors becoming partners in the productions, and this deal is in line with that strategy. Three-year-old Amber is headed by former New Line execs Maisel, Mark Ordesky and Jane Fleming along with Lawrence Elman.

Maisel and Elman are teamed with Fellowes to produce Carlo Carlei’s “Romeo and Juliet,” with Douglas Booth and Hailee Steinfeld in the leads.

Amber’s in production with Emmett/Furla Films in Alaska on thriller “The Frozen Ground,” starring Nicolas Cage and John Cusack. It partnered with Haxan Films on “Lovely Molly,” from “Blair Witch” director Eduardo Sanchez. That pic premiered in Toronto’s Midnight Madness section and will be distribbed domestically by Image Entertainment.
