Zelda Fitzgerald, novelist, socialite and wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald, has been brought to the screen numerous times in fictional portrayals. Now there is a plan to tell her story in a more direct biopic and Jennifer Lawrence is attached to portray her in a film that Ron Howard may direct.
The film, currently known simply as Zelda, is being developed by former Lionsgate executive-turned-producer Allison Shearmur (who helped push Lawrence's career into the stratosphere with the Hunger Games movies) alongside Brian Oliver and Justine Ciarrocchi.
The White Queen's Emma Frost has written the script, drawing inspiration from Nancy Milford's biography, also called Zelda. Howard hasn't definitely agreed to direct, but he's involved with the development and certainly seems to be interested.
