Georgina Chapman (Mrs. Weinstein) Casts Aaron Tveit, Dree Hemingway in Her Short Film


Georgina Chapman is Mrs. Harvey Weinstein to you. She is also the phenomenally successful designer of the Marchesa line of gowns and dresses that are knockouts on every red carpet. Now Ms. Chapman is branching out into film. She’s directing a short one for Project Imagination by Canon. The film was announced last year but now we know something about it. Aaron Tveit of “Les Miserables” and now “Graceland” is in it, as well as Dree Hemingway, daughter of Mariel.  Neil Gaiman wrote the script about two kids who can fly but give it up as they get older. The film is untitled still, and the production is looking for a 9 year old girl to play Hemingway from her childhood.
