James Mangold Directing Patty Hearst Drama, Elle Fanning in Talks

James Mangold Directing Patty Hearst Drama, Elle Fanning in Talks

For the past few weeks, I'd heard James Mangold might be directing a movie called Girl With a Gun, based on Jeffrey Toobin's book about Patty Hearst titled American Heiress, but honestly, I didn't know how the guy could possibly fit it into his schedule. The film will not share the book's title, but it will draw on Toobin's reporting as it delves into Hearst's kidnapping by the Symbionese Liberation Army and re-emergence as a member of the left-wing terrorist group. Whether seen as a brainwashed victim or militant revolutionary, Hearst's story continues to catch the imagination, including perhaps that of Elle Fanning who is circling the project with the aim to play Hearst.

First announced in 2015, with Jennifer Lawrence mooted as a possible star, the script was written by biopic masters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (The People vs. OJ Simpson, Ed Wood, Man on the Moon) alongside Mangold.

20th Century Fox is backing the film via its Fox 2000 label. He also has previously been tapped to adapt Don Winslow's The Force novel and is still developing a screenplay for an X-23 movie, however Patty Hearst will take precedence above the rest. She ended up sympathising with her captors and even went on bank robberies with them before she was arrested in 1975. Once she was captured, her trial was one of the most infamous in American history, each revelation more shocking than the last.

CC is now undervalued by -20.3% relative to the average 1-year price target of $61.86 taken from a group of Wall Street Analysts. In related news, Director Eugene Sperling acquired 1,000 shares of the firm's stock in a transaction on Friday, September 15th.

One only assumes that the script for Girl With a Gun is incredible, as Mangold could've picked any project he wanted to follow up Logan with (due to its box office now standing at $616 million worldwide). Mangold's other credits include "Walk the Line", "Girl Interrupted", and "The Wolverine".

Mangold is represented by WME and Management 360.
