VARIETYJack O’Connell, Chloe Moretz, and Josh Gad are starring in “Party of the Century,” centered on Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball with shooting starting later this year in New York City.

Gad will portray Capote. Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman are directing and Tim Perell will produce the film through his shingle Process Media.

Bankside Films will exclusively handle foreign sales at the Cannes Film Festival, with CAA and Bankside Films co-representing North American rights.

Hilary Davis, Stephen Kelliher, and Patrick Howson will executive produce for Bankside Films. Head Gear Films will provide production financing with Phil Hunt and Compton Ross acting as executive producers.

Capote held the ball in 1966 at the Plaza Hotel in New York City to honor Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham.

Pulcini and Springer Berman said, “Our film is a delicate balance of worlds converging at a pivotal moment in time. Jack, Chloe and Josh are brilliant performers who can embody these worlds while bringing the electricity and pathos required to make the story fly.”

Party of the Century” is an unexpected love story between O’Connell’s working-class elevator operator and Moretz’s Hollywood ingénue, both of whom score coveted invites to Capote’s Black and White Ball.

O’Connell co-starred in Jodie Foster’s financial thriller “Money Monster.” He will next be seen in Netflix TV series “Godless” from Steven Soderbergh and Scott Frank.

EVENING STANDARD – Sienna Miller and Jack O’Connell will star in Tennessee Williams’ Cat on a Hot Tin Roof for a new production opening at the Apollo Theatre this July.

Directed by Benedict Andrews, it will be produced by the Young Vic, making it the theatre’s first production to debut in the West End. They have previously transferred a number of their shows to the West End, including The Scottsboro Boys and A View From A Bridge.

Miller, who has had a number of screen roles including The Edge of Love and Alfie, has appeared on stage a number of times already. She starred in Flare Path at the Royal Haymarket in 2011 as part of Terence Rattigan’s centenary celebrations, and has appeared in After Miss Julie on Broadway.

O’Connell, who was directed by Angelina Jolie in the film Unbroken and is known for starring in Skins, last appeared on stage last year for The Nap at Sheffield Crucible.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof runs at the Apollo Theatre from July 13 to October 7

Sadly, Tulip Fever has been pushed again. It will be released sometime later this year.

THE WRAP – The Weinstein Company film “Tulip Fever” has been punted down the release schedule yet again.

The Alicia Vikander drama will not open on Feb. 24 as planned but will be “moved to later in 2017,” a TWC spokesperson told TheWrap.

A specific release date wasn’t given. The film had already been moved once, away from a July 2016 opening where it was expected to enter this year’s awards conversation.

Tulip Fever” was directed by Justin Chadwick, with a screenplay by Tom Stoppard adapting Deborah Moggach’s acclaimed novel. Alison Owen and Harvey Weinstein served as producers.

Set in 17th century Amsterdam, the film follows a married woman (Vikander) who begins a passionate affair with an artist (Dane DeHaan) hired to paint her portrait. The lovers gamble on the booming market for tulip bulbs as a way to raise money to run away together.

The film has a starry ensemble that includes Oscar winners Christoph Waltz and Judi Dench, as well as Jack O’Connell, Cara Delevingne, Zach Galifianakis, Tom Hollander, Holliday Grainger, David Harewood and Matthew Morrison. The studio cut a trailer for the project last year, which can be viewed below.

While TWC is enjoying some late-in-the-season success with their film “Lion” — which earned six Oscar nominations including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress for Nicole Kidman and Best Supporting Actor for Dev Patel — distribution is a touchy subject at the moment.

The company was hit with a lawsuit last week from a subsidiary of fellow distributor FilmNation for allegedly violating the release terms on their co-production “The Founder.”

FilmNation claims that TWC agreed it would not release any other film within two weeks of the Ray Kroc biopic starring Michael Keaton. TWC indeed wound up rolling out another awards hopeful — Matthew McConaughey’s “Gold” — the weekend after “The Founder” opened in limited release. FilmNation is seeking the most valuable of two settlement options: the full cost of their final prints and advertising budget, or $15 million.

Legal woes aside, we do hope “Tulip Fever” blooms in theaters sometime this year. It’s a reunion of sorts between Weinstein and Stoppard, who swept the Oscars with 1998’s “Shakespeare in Love.”

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Andrew Haigh is set to direct the film about the late fashion icon, with principal photography to begin in January.
The hotly anticipated Alexander McQueen biopic has found its leading man.

Jack O’Connell (Unbroken, ’71) has been cast as the late fashion designer in the untitled film to be directed by Andrew Haigh (Weekend, 45 Years) with Pathe producing.

The script is written by Chris Urch, the award-winning playwright of The Rolling Stone and Land of Our Fathers, and based on the biography Blood Beneath the Skin by Andrew Wilson. The film will explore the creative process of McQueen — who passed away in 2010 — in the months leading up to one of his greatest shows in 2009, providing an intimate portrait of the man behind the global brand.

Damian Jones (The Iron Lady, Belle, Lady in the Van) is producing, with principal photography set to start in January for delivery at the end of 2017.

Pathe will distribute the film in the U.K., France and Switzerland and will handle sales throughout the rest of the world, introducing the film to buyers at this year’s AFM.

Haigh, who saw 45 Years pick up awards in Berlin in 2015 and earn an Oscar nomination for Charlotte Rampling this year, recently wrapped Lean on Pete and is teaming with See-Saw Films and the BBC on a new drama series.
