Duck And Cover: James Mangold's Next Is GIRL WITH A GUN

James Mangold to Direct Patty Hearst Movie With Elle Fanning in Talks to Star James Mangold Directing Patty Hearst Drama, Elle Fanning in Talks (EXCLUSIVE)

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.

For those of you who do not know the story of Patty Hearst, in 1974 the heiress was 19 and in college when she was kidnapped by a left-wing terrorist group in California called the Symbionese Liberation Army (read the group's manifesto here).

The screenplay was written by Larry Karaszewski & Scott Alexander and Mangold. From that point forward, she was a counter-culture symbol, and began participating in armed bank robberies.

Well it's good to see that despite whatever ominous headlines are in the Hollywood trades these days, the folks at 20th Century Fox are not letting it stop them from developing some interesting sounding projects. The director is producing with Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson of Colorforce.

The trio will also draw on Toobin's reporting of the case, with 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.

Mangold's been in demand since "Logan" became a commercial hit, grossing $616.8 million globally.

Fanning is one of the movie business's top rising stars, having appeared in "20th Century Women", "The Beguiled", and "The Neon Demon". 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. Fanning is represented by WME and Echo Lake Entertainment.
