Hayley Atwell joins Tom Hiddleston on Capa Biopic

Tom Hiddleston and Hayley Atwell join Close Enough

Romantic drama about two war photographers will be directed by Song for Marion’s Paul Andrew Williams.

Hiddleston will play famous war photographer Robert Capa while Atwell will portray the equally famous first female war photographer Gerda Toro.

The story is set during their years in Paris in the mid-1930s and leads to a dramatic conclusion during the Spanish Civil War.

It will be directed by Paul Andrew Williams, the writer-director behind Song for Marion and London to Brighton.

Principal photography is set to begin in June 2013.

Production companies are Camera Entertainment BV (Netherlands), Kanzaman S.A. (Spain) and Steel Mill Pictures (UK).

It will be produced by Sim van Veen and Laurens Geels with Denise O’Dell, Mark Albela and Ken Marshall as executive producers.

Williams said: “The idea of bringing these two iconic, extraordinary characters to the big screen is one I relish.

“Not only is it a beautiful love story, but Capa and Gerda influenced each other in such a dramatic way that it changed the idea of photo journalism for ever.

“I am more than delighted to be working with Tom and Hayley. After I met with Tom his passion for this project and his commitment to the script and character was so exciting.

“Hayley is someone I have wanted to work with for a long time and after a few near misses we have finally found, what I believe to be, the best project to collaborate on.

“The chemistry between Capa and Gerda was electric and I have confidence that Tom and Hayley will repeat that chemistry on film.”
