Bonham Carter Enters “Saint Maize”

Helena Bonham Carter is set to star in the miniseries “Saint Mazie” for Fable Pictures and Palantir Group based on Jami Attenberg’s novel.

Bonham Carter will star as Mazie Gordon-Phillips, the real-life character who spent her days in the 1930s selling tickets at a movie theater which she eventually inherited, and in her spare time walked the streets of New York giving the homeless soap and sips of liquor from her flask.

Though barely moving beyond the perimeter of two square miles, she became a local legend who lifted the spirit of a community.

Clara Brennan will adapt the script while Faye Ward and Scott LaStaiti will produce.
