James Mangold is following up "Logan" by tackling Patty Hearst, Variety has learned. The film will not share the book's title, but it will draw on Toobin's reporting as it delves into Hearst's kidnapping by the Symbionese Liberation Army and re-emergence as a member of the left-wing terrorist group.

Patty Hearst is a revolutionary icon - granddaughter of William Randolph Hearst and former heiress, Patty was kidnapped by the left-wing Symbionese Liberation Army in '74, becoming their prisoner for two years. Indeed, as Fox campaigns for awards accolades for Logan, Mangold has apparently written the latest draft of this Patty Hearst movie, which was previously worked on by Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander. The director is producing with Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson of Colorforce. After being held by the group for 19 months, Hearst began exhibiting symptoms of what many psychologists thought was Stockholm Syndrome or sympathizing and identifying with her captors to the point that she actually picked up a gun and joined them in things like bank robberies (we have Patty Hearst doing this on tape).

Values of %D line that are above 80 indicate that the security is overbought; prices could well fall in the near future. Further, company shares have been seen trading -17.04% off of the 52 week high and 32.81% away from the 52 week low.

One only assumes that the script for Girl With a Gun is incredible, as Mangold could've picked any project he wanted to follow up Logan with (due to its box office now standing at $616 million worldwide).

The logline for the movie is that it "traces the audacious, kaleidoscopic and psychologically twisted story of a true-life Alice in Wonderland". Mangold's other credits include "Walk the Line", "Girl Interrupted", and "The Wolverine". Elle Fanning meanwhile continues to see her star rise, having made waves in last year's The Neon Demon and 20th Century Women. Fanning is represented by WME and Echo Lake Entertainment.
