Roadside picks up ‘Garden of Eden’

Controversial Hemingway novel was author's last

Roadside Attractions has picked up U.S. rights to John Irvin’s “Hemingway’s Garden of Eden” nearly two years after the film — based on Ernest Hemingway’s final unfinished novel — premiered at the Rome Film Fest.

Roadside is planning a Dec. 10 release.

Toplining Mena Suvari and Jack Huston, “Garden of Eden” is a U.K./Spanish co-production. Tranquil Seas produced with Devonshire Prods. in association with Berwick Street Prods. and Freeform Spain.

Roadside co-prexies Howard Cohen and Eric d’Arbeloff announced the acquisition — in the works for some time — with Ian Jessel, prez of Tranquil Seas USA.

The novelist’s erotically charged tome was published posthumously in 1986. Set in the jazz age, it’s one of the author’s most debated novels, sparking conversation about whether the author wanted the novel published at all.

Irvin directed from an adapted script by former Paris Review editor James Scott Linville.

“Garden of Eden” follows the story of a young American writer and his beautiful wife as they take an extended honeymoon in Europe.

Caterina Murino, Richard E. Grant, Matthew Modine and Carmen Maura also star.
