Hemingway biopic going to big screen

What else could be more fun to watch than the story of a man who writes and drinks all day and eventually shoots himself? You got it. A film based on the life of Ernest Hemingway. 

Reuters reports that the best selling memoir “Papa Hemingway: A Personal Memoir” by A.E. Hotchner will be the basis for the film.

The article reports: “The Gotham Group, a management and production company, and producer Kevin Fortuna have secured rights to Hotchner's New York Times best-seller. The book explores the last 14 years of the Nobel Prize-winning author's life, during which he was close friends with Hotchner, now 88.”

Published by Random House, the book first appeared in 1966.
