Martin Sheen, Emilio Estevez to co-write father-son memoirBy ANI
Thursday, January 20, 2011
LONDON - Actor Martin Sheen and his son Emilio Estevez have teamed-up to write a memoir called Along the Way, to be published next year.
Free Press, part of Simon and Schuster, said it would “celebrate [the] profound bond” between the two actors.
“I’m so happy to be working on this unique project with my father. We’re both fathers of sons… neighbours and activists,” the BBC quoted Estevez as saying.
The pair recently collaborated on film ‘The Way’, which Estevez directed and Sheen appeared in as Estevez’s father.
In the film, Sheen plays a man who walks a thousand-year-old pilgrimage path in Spain in his late son’s honour.
“We hope that our story will communicate an essential message for our times,” Estevez said.
“Film is an illusion. Fame is ephemeral. Faith and family are what endure,” he added.
The book will “give candid insights into the actors’ lives and relationship [and] tell of their individual search for faith,” according to Free Press. (ANI)
