‘The Alchemist’ Movie: Laurence Fishburne & Idris Elba In Talks For Weinstein Co

Deadline:
The Weinstein Company is in talks with Laurence Fishburne and Idris Elba to direct and star, respectively, in their long-gestating adaptation of Paolo Coelho’s bestselling novel The Alchemist. No deals have closed yet, but this is a passion project for both Harvey Weinstein and Fishburne. TWC is hoping to get this in front of cameras in 2016.
