Sean Penn To Play Max Perkins?

seanpennWho better to play a literary editor than someone named Penn, right? The talk this week is that Mr. Sean will play Max Perkins, who shepherded the work of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. The movie would be based on Scott Berg’s absorbing bio of Perkins, which this news report says was published in 2008 but was in fact published in 1978. Berg went on to write equally absorbing biographies of Sam Goldwyn and Charles Lindbergh as well as a best-selling reminiscence of his friendship with Katherine Hepburn.
