Kate Winslet will portray American fashion model, artist and war correspondent Elizabeth “Lee” Miller in an untitled screen story about the woman at Hopscotch Features.
Based on Antony Penrose’s biography “The Lives of Lee Miller,” it explores how Miller became a model as a teen then the muse and lover to artist Man Ray where she met the likes of Pablo Picasso and Jean Cocteau. She became an art photographer, but during WW2 became a pre-eminent war photographer for Vogue.
Troy Lum and Andrew Mason will produce and have obtained exclusive access to the Lee Miller Archives, but no writer or director is yet onboard. Winslet currently stars as Apple marketing whiz Joanna Hoffman in Danny Boyle’s “Steve Jobs” film and will next be seen in “The Dressmaker” and “Triple 9”.
