Al Pacino’s daughter hoping to make Pickford biopic

Producers at Poverty Row Entertainment have won the rights to Eileen Whitfield’s biography Pickford: The Woman Who Made Hollywood, and now studio bosses are hoping to recreate the Pollyanna star’s life story in a new movie about her career and marriage to screen idol Douglas Fairbanks.

A statement released by company executives Julie Pacino and Jennifer DeLia reads, “With no intention of creating a conventional biopic, we will use the language of film to hopscotch through time, in order to tell the story of a woman so ahead of her time who was living one of the most romantic love stories of all-time.

“Mary Pickford’s story is one of intense emotion, astute intuition, dedicated artistry, and about the creation of Hollywood.”

Pacino and DeLia, who will direct the film, are hoping to sell the project to financiers at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival in France.

Casting has yet to be announced.
