Peck sets sights on Marx biopic

Empty

Haitian auteur Raoul Peck will direct "Karl Marx," tracing the young adventures of the German philosopher and revolutionary, producer Jacques Bidou said Thursday (HR 5/4).

The picture will cover the period 1830-48, including Marx's time in Paris before being expelled to Brussels and culminating with the publication of the Communist Manifesto.

The story also will en-compass Marx's love for his aristocratic wife, Jenny von Westphalen, and his friendship with Friedrich Engels, with whom he co-authored the Manifesto.
