Tom Hiddleston Set For Close Enough
Hayley Atwell will co-star

Tom Hiddleston, Hayley Atwell

It’s Marvel favourites, together at last! Yes, that buddy comedy between Third Scientist On The Left At The Start Of The Avengers and Man At Race In Iron Man 2 is a go! Actually, Song For Marion director Paul Andrew Williams has recruited Hayley Atwell and some bloke called Hiddleston for his romantic war drama Close Enough. Cue the “I’d get close enough to Tom/Hayley*” comments now. We’ll wait until you’re done.

Close Enough will chronicle the very real love story between war photographers Robert Capa and Gerda Toro. We’ll follow them from their years in Paris in the early 1930s through to the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939, history fans).

“The idea of bringing these two iconic, extraordinary characters to the big screen is one I relish,” Williams says in a statement picked up by Screen Daily. “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.”

With a June shoot planned, we’re enthused to see Williams stretching himself yet again and, let’s face it, both Hiddleston and Atwell have the chops to make it work.
