James Mangold To Helm “Ingrid Bergman”

Filmmaker James Mangold (“The Wolverine”) is attached to direct “Seducing Ingrid Bergman,” a film whose script by Arash Amel made last year’s Black List.

Based on Chris Greenhalgh’s book of the same title, the story follows the torrid, life-changing romance between the “Casablanca” actress and celebrated war photographer Robert Capa that ignited in Paris after WWII.

Bergman was denounced by the U.S. Senate following public revelation of her her affair with director Roberto Rossellini. Capa has his own issues of gambling and alcoholism, but the pair ultimately found an awakening and liberation together.

Amel and Uday Chopra will produce.
