Andy Garcia will direct, and he is co-writing the script with the writer’s niece, Hilary Hemingway, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The film will be set primarily in Cuba and Idaho, where the author lived while writing the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, “The Old Man and the Sea.”
Here’s more from the article: “Garcia said he hopes to explore the psyche of Hemingway, the dynamic with [his captain] and the relationship both had with fishing. ‘I’m a Hemingway nut and also an avid fisherman, and the reality of the relationship between Hemingway and his captain is compelling to me.’” (Via Book Bench)
