Firth, Kidman and Law get set for Genius

Nicole KidmanFilming is now due to start in mid-October on Genius, the forthcoming feature starring Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman and Jude Law.

The drama, which will shoot in the UK and the US, explores the relationship between author Thomas Wolfe (Law) and renowned literary editor Max Perkins.

Acclaimed theatre director Michael Grandage is coming out from behind the proscenium to take the helm, calling the shots from a screenplay by Bond supremo and Penny Dreadful writer John Logan, who has adapted it from A Scott Berg's biography Max Perkins: Editor of Genius.

Logan also produces along with Grandage and James Bierman; the latter two founded The Michael Grandage Company in 2011.
