Pierce Brosnan and Goldeneye director Martin Campbell are set to reunite for the adaptation of Ernest Hemingway’s final novel, Across The River and Into the Trees.
Currently working together on Jackie Chan’s IRA action thriller The Foreigner (adapted from Stephen Leather’s book The Chinaman), the Hemingway adaptation will be a new departure for Campbell.
So, what’s the book about?
The War is just over. In Venice, a city elaborately and affectionately described, Richard Cantrell, an American colonel, falls passionately in love with Renata, a young Italian countess who has 'a profile that could break your or anyone else's heart'.
Cantrell is embittered, war-scarred, old enough to be Renata's father but is overwhelmed by the selflessness and freshness of the love she is offering. But this is no fairy tale. The fighting may have ended, but the wounds of war have not yet healed. And for some, the longed-for peace has come too late.
Hemingway’s favourite themes of war and love feature throughout this novel. The main characters were based on two of his friends.
