According to Towles, the book was inspired by a business trip two years earlier as he mused about guests at Le Richemond hotel in Geneva, Switzerland. He had noticed the same people on a previous trip, and he began to wonder what it would be like to be trapped, for decades, inside a hotel. Towles wrote his thoughts down on Le Richemond hotel stationery, notes which he has kept to this day. See the video from this Wall Street Journal article.

Kenneth Branagh will star in and produce "A Gentleman in Moscow". It looks like it is a mini-series though - not a movie.
