Ingrid BergmanProducer Uday Chopra and Grace of Monaco writer Arash Amel have come together to produce a screen adaption of 2012 novel “Seducing Ingrid Bergman”.

YRF Entertainment has optioned the Chris Greenhalgh novel which dramatizes the real-life affair between legendary Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman and war photographer Robert Capa.

Amel and Chopra worked together on Olivier Dahan directed Grace of Monaco, a film being released later this year by The Weinstein Company.

Speaking about the development, Chopra said, “I believe that Arash Amel, who also wrote ‘Grace of Monaco’, is the perfect writer to bring this story to life and I’m very excited to have YRF Entertainment bring it to the world.”

The script is nearing completion and other details will soon be revealed as and when the director and cast are locked. YRF Entertainment’s Head of Development & Production, Jonathan Reiman, will be the executive producer.
