It seems as though we've been talking about a biopic of legendary war-photographer and photojournalist Robert Capa forever, but it does look like one is finally going to make it into production. It won't be the one directed by Michael Mann however, because whilst he's still reported to be developing his own Capa feature, a rival project now titled "Close Enough" gained serious traction with the addition of "Avengers" actor Tom Hiddleston last week. Although, at the same time it lost the long attached Gemma Arterton, it was assumed that the inclusion of Hiddleston would be enough to get another actor in quickly and that has proven to be the case.

In the works for a quite a few years now, you might have lost track of where we're at in terms of a biopic on war photographer Robert Capa. Way, way back in 2010, Gemma Arterton said that she was going to star in a movie to be directed by Michael Mann, but then last year at the Marrakech International Film Festival, the actress clarified with us the status of her film, and revealed that there is more than one movie in the works.

Last week at the Marrakech Film Festival, we got to sit down in a small press group with jury member Gemma Arterton. She’s an actress who for a while seemed to be following a fairly standard route, especially for a British starlet, following up her first film “St Trinian's” with some period TV before landing a Bond girl role in “Quantum of Solace.” However, since that breakout, while she’s done studio fare (“Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time,” the upcoming “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters”), we’ve also seen her skew more eccentric with some of her choices, taking small, British films like “Tamara Drewe” and “Song for Marion" along with edgy indie thriller "The Disappearance Of Alice Creed," and she boasts a forthcoming lineup that promises much more interesting fare to come.

Despite a number of gestating go-to film projects on Michael Mann's plate including a long gestating adaptation of Ernest Hemingway‘s “For Whom The Bell Tolls;” the medieval tale “Agincourt” based on the novel by Bernard Cromwell and the gangster pic “Big Tuna" being written by "Up In The Air" scribe Sheldon Turner it looks like movement is coming together on a film that has been kicking around for a little while now.
