Ernest Hemingway’s memoir “A Moveable Feast” could soon be coming to the small screen.

Village Roadshow Entertainment Group (VREG), Mariel Hemingway, John Goldstone, and Marc Rosen have closed a deal to produce a series based on the book, which was originally published in 1964. Alix Jaffe, VREG’s executive vice president of television, will oversee the project along with Jillian Apfelbaum, executive vice president of content, and Adam Dunlap, vice president of television. Scribner’s published the book in the US and Jonathan Cape published in the U.K.

“A Moveable Feast” details Hemingway’s life as a young expatriate journalist in Paris in the 1920s while he was married to his first wife, Hadley Richardson. Famous figures including F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Alice B. Toklas, Gertrude Stein, and James Joyce are also featured in the book.

“‘A Moveable Feast’ has been my favorite book since I was 11 years old when my father took me to Paris,” Mariel said. “While reading the book together, he showed me where Papa lived (and daddy was raised) ate, wrote, and dreamed of becoming a great writer. His deep love of my grandmother Hadley and his growing passion for art is an inspiring time at the beginning of his iconic career. I want to reveal on film the coming of age story that has captivated readers and burgeoning writers for several decades.”

Rosen brought the project to VREG. His past producing credits include the Netflix series “Sense8,” “The After” for Amazon, and CBS’ “Threshold.” Goldstone’s producing credits include films like “Jonah Hex” and “Get Carter.”

Mariel Hemingway was repped by Nathan Talei and Tracy Columbus. Goldstone was repped by David Tenzer. The Hemingway Trust is represented by Lazarus & Harris.

  1. Which of The Moveable Feasts will be portrayed? I listened to an Audible book that was different from the original book.

    1. Nancy: Thanks for writing. It says the 1964 version which is the “original” edited by Mary after Hemingway’s death. The later versions were edited by Hemingway’s grandson, Sean Hemingway, fairly recently and were a bit kinder to Pauline. I hope the project gets out as you know how it goes. Series though are popular and streaming platforms need content so i am hopeful. Also, if Mariel Hemingway is working on it, my guess would be that she would use the original. I put “original” in quotes only because it was published posthumously and he never okays any of it. Thank you again! Best, Christine
