James Mangold to direct Elle Fanning in Patty Hearst film

James Mangold to direct Elle Fanning in Patty Hearst film”

The film is based on author Jeffrey Toobin's American Heiress, with a screenplay by Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander, along with Mangold. Hearst was kidnapped by the revolutionary Symbionese Liberation Army only to re-emerge as as a member of the terrorist group. It appears that an unexpected new entry has leapt over the rest to become his focus: an untitled biopic about kidnapped heiress Patty Hearst that has Elle Fanning in talks to star. Nina Jacobsen and Brad Simpson of Colorforce will produce alongside Mangold.

Mangold has been attached to several other high profile projects, including an adaptation of Don Winslow's popular novel "The Force", as well as a big screen version of Katherine Applegate's best-selling children's book "Crenshaw". And besides, this Patty Hearst project would all depend on "the girl".

James Mangold is taking on another true-life story.

It will detail the heiress's capture and two-year detainment by the Symbionese Liberation Army in the mid-1970s, as well as her transition from hostage to warrior. And despite being the granddaughter of conservative media mogul William Randolph Hearst (the inspiration for Citizen Kane), she was arrested 19 months after her own kidnapping following the commitment of crimes alongside the group.

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). It was also hailed by critics for its blood-drenched, character driven re-imagining of the superhero genre. Her upcoming credits include "Mary Shelley" and "I Think We're Alone Now". Fanning is represented by WME and Echo Lake Entertainment.
