James Mangold, Elle Fanning Team for Patty Hearst Movie at Fox 2000

Patty Hearst Movie James Mangold to Direct Elle Fanning in Biopic

James Mangold will direct the film based around the kidnapping of heiress Patty Hearst. Hearst was kidnapped by the revolutionary Symbionese Liberation Army only to re-emerge as as a member of the terrorist group.

And yet now, with the news that Elle Fanning is in talks to play the infamous heiress (which the Tracking Board has confirmed), Mangold has committed to making Fox 2000's Untitled Patty Hearst Project his next movie.

First announced in 2015, with Jennifer Lawrence mooted as a possible star, the script was written by biopic masters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (The People vs. OJ Simpson, Ed Wood, Man on the Moon) alongside Mangold. After being held by the group for 19 months, Hearst began exhibiting symptoms of what many psychologists thought was Stockholm Syndrome or sympathizing and identifying with her captors to the point that she actually picked up a gun and joined them in things like bank robberies (we have Patty Hearst doing this on tape). He also has previously been tapped to adapt Don Winslow's The Force novel and is still developing a screenplay for an X-23 movie, however Patty Hearst will take precedence above the rest.

Preferred Apartment Communities Inc (NYSE:APTS) Institutional Investor Sentiment Analysis
Baird maintained Mid-America Apartment Communities, Inc. (NYSE: APTS ) earned "Buy" rating by Wunderlich on Wednesday, November 2. The company has a market cap of $11,685.40, a price-to-earnings ratio of 17.31, a PEG ratio of 2.48 and a beta of 0.34.

The film will trace the audacious, kaleidoscopic and psychologically twisted story of a true-life Alice in Wonderland, Patricia Hearst, whose capture and two-year detainment by the Symbionese Liberation Army in the mid 1970's captured the world's imagination and plunged the sheltered young woman into the center of a counter-culture revolution.

This follows Mangold's recent success on 20th Century Fox's Logan, an anti-hero superhero movie that has powerful ambitions atop its strong critical and box office reception. Her arrest and trial sparked a media frenzy.
