Fincher Producing Dorothea Lange Biopic

By Garth Franklin Friday July 29th 2011 08:04AM

David Fincher is set to executive produce a biopic about famed photographer Dorothea Lange says Variety.

Despite contracting polio at age seven and being left with a permanent limp, Lange went on to become an acclaimed American photojournalist best known for her work in the 30's. Her poignant images humanised the tragic consequences of the Great Depression.

Her work had a major influence on documentary photography and inspired John Steinbeck to pen the seminal American novel "The Grapes of Wrath".

Angela Workman ("The Zookeeper's Wife") is developing the script, Leslie Dektor will direct and David B. Ginsberg will produce.
