Tom Blyth cast in adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms novel 

Actor Tom Blyth who was last seen in Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, will be next seen in the upcoming feature film adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's novel A Farewell to Arms. The film will be written and directed by Michael Winterbottom.

In A Farewell to Arms, Tom will play the central character and ambulance driver of Italian Army during World War, Frederic Henry. As he gets hurt, Frederic meets a nurse with whom he falls in love with. It will be produced by Fremantle, Revolution Films and Passenger, and go on floors in Italy in 2024.

“Hemingway believed in paring a story down to the bare bones. He argued that a novel could be like an iceberg: the reader only sees the tip above the water but feels the bulk and weight of what lies below the surface. I want our film to be true to Hemingway’s approach — immediate, raw and natural — and I think in Tom Blyth we have found the perfect person to be Frederic Henry,” Michael said in a statement.

A Farewell to Arms is one of the renowned works of Ernest Hemingway and borrows from his life experiences of being an ambulance driver. The literary work was adapted in 1932 and 1957 as a feature film, and as a miniseries in 1966.
