Allen & Irons Join Georgia O’Keeffe Film

Joan Allen and Jeremy Irons are set to star in a Lifetime biopic about late American artist Georgia O’Keeffe for Sony Pictures TV says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story follows the turbulent 20-year love affair between the celebrated artist (Allen) and photographer Alfred Steiglitz (Irons).

Allen will also serve as executive producer alongside Joshua D. Maurer (“Introducing Dorothy Dandridge”) and Alixandre Witlin (“Dodson’s Journey”).

Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Cristofer (“Gia”) penned the script and Bob Balaban is on board to direct. The film will premiere early Fall 2009.

Allen and Irons also are set to star on Broadway in the play “Impressionism” starting in March.
