Screen Media is planning a March limited theatrical release of James Ivory's "The City of Your Final Destination" reports Variety.

Based on Peter Cameron's 2002 novel and adapted by Ruth Jhabvala, the story follows a young American academic, who attempts to persuade the reluctant heirs of a celebrated Uruguayan novelist to allow him to write an authorized biography of the writer.

Anthony Hopkins portrays the writer's brother and Laura Linney plays the writer's widow. Charlotte Gainsbourg, Omar Metwally, Alexandra Maria Lara, Norma Aleandro and Hiroyuki Sanada also star.

Paul Bradley and Pierre Proner produced the Argentina-shot flick which marks Ivory's first effort since the passing of longtime producing collaborator Ismail Merchant.
