Bedlam Productions, co-producer of The King’s Speech which had its world premiere last night at Toronto, is developing The Lady Who Went Too Far with that film’s screenwriter David Seidler. The project will mark the second collaboration between Seidler (who wrote Tucker for Coppola) and King’s Speech producer Gareth Unwin. Bedlam’s pitching the project, based on Kirsten Ellis’ biography of Lady Hester Stanhope, as a female Lawrence of Arabia set during the Napoleonic Wars. Seidler says that Stanhope “came to exactly the same conclusion that Lawrence did, that we had no place in the Middle East and should keep away politically”.
