Suvari Trims Hemingway’s Garden

Mena Suvari will star with Jack Huston, Caterina Murino and Richard E. Grant in the John Irvin-directed adaptation of Ernest Hemingway’s “The Garden of Eden” reports Variety.

Story is set in the pre-Depression jazz age. A wartime pilot-turned-writer (Huston) and his new wife (Suvari) embark on an extended honeymoon in Europe; she becomes restless and tests her husband’s devotion in unusual ways. One is to bring a sultry Italian girl (Murino) into their bedroom.

Hemingway died before finishing the novel, which was published in 1986. Tim Lewiston wrote the script and shooting will take place in Spain.
