Tina Brown Working On Coward Film


Noel Coward (pictured) was one of the great show-biz stories of the 20th century: he was an actor, composer, director, playwright, poet, and novelist. “The Letters of Noel Coward,” which came out last year, was a completely engrossing account of the day-to-day excitement of his life; the book also revealed to many people (and reminded others) that Coward worked during World War II as a spy. LemonWade has learned (why do I like that phrase so much?) that Tina Brown, former editor-in-chief of Vanity Fair and The New Yorker, is working to turn Coward’s wartime story into a film. And there is a move afoot to have Coward’s larger life story adapted for a play, possibly with the very appealing Broadway actor Edward Hibbert. I’ll pass along more details on both of these projects when I have them.
