Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman’s movie based on Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball, Party of the Century, has cast Josh Gad, Chloë Grace Moretz and Jack O’Connell.
Josh Gad will portray Capote, who hosts a high-profile ball that Jack O’Connell’s working class elevator operator and Chloë Grace Moretz’s Hollywood ingénue both receive invites to.
CAA and Bankside Films will handle the movie’s distribution rights in North America, with Bankside taking full control over international distribution. Executive Producers on the movie will be Hilary Davis, Stephen Kelliher and Patrick Howson of Bankside Films, along with Phil Hunt and Compton Ross of Head Gear Films whom are co-financing the project.
Directors Pulcini and Springer Berman released the following statement:
“Our film is a delicate balance of worlds converging at a pivotal moment in time. Jack, Chloe and Josh are brilliant performers who can embody these worlds while bringing the electricity and pathos required to make the story fly.”
