Guy Pearce has joined Nicole Kidman on the cast of Michael Grandage's Genius

Adapted by John Logan (Skyfall, The Aviator) from 'Max Perkins: Editor of Genius,' A. Scott Berg's biography of literary icon Thomas Wolfe, the cast also includes Colin Firth, Jude Law, Dominic West and Laura Linney. 

Genius follows the real-life story of Wolfe (Law), F. Scott Fitzgerald (Pearce) and Ernest Hemmingway (West), and their relationship with their editor, Max Perkins (Firth).

The story will also centre on Wolfe's affair with costume designer Aline Berstein (Kidman), a woman 20 years his senior, and Linney is on board to play Louise Sanders, Perkins' wife. 

Filming is scheduled to take place in October in the UK and USA.

Congrats, Guy!
