INGA Film Rights Optioned


Academy Award-winning Danish Producer, Kim Magnusson, of Dansk Film Komagni, has optioned INGA: Kennedy’s Great Love, Hitler’s Perfect Beauty, and J. Edgar Hoover’s Prime Suspect, by New York Times bestselling author, Scott Farris. 

INGA is the much-acclaimed biography of Inga Arvad, who was the great love of President John F. Kennedy, but also Adolf Hitler’s special guest at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. She was an actress, a foreign correspondent, a popular Washington columnist, an explorer, a Hollywood gossip columnist, and a suspected Nazi spy. The latter nearly got Kennedy cashiered out of the Navy, but instead set in motion the chain of events that led to his becoming a war hero.

Kim Magnusson explains, “When I first heard about INGA from my two collaborators Mette Lisby and Jesper Baehrenz, I was so intrigued to find out more about a Danish person, whom I didn’t know about—a woman with that much power in her hands I needed to explore.”

Scott Farris says: "I am delighted, honored, and gratified that a producer the caliber of Kim Magnusson sees the cinematic possibilities in the life of Inga Arvad. John Kennedy's great love, an accused Nazi spy, an intimate of Hollywood stars, and much more, Inga led one of the most fascinating lives of the 20th century. My book is the first to tell her full story in print, and I have no doubt that Kim can win even more acclaim by bringing her remarkable story to an even wider audience.”

Kim Magnusson further explains: “I can’t wait to get going on making this into a great cinematic experience for the big and small screen.”
