Permut Presentations and Reunion Pictures are developing the feature “Tracy and Hepburn” which would deal with the love affair between Hollywood icons Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy.
David Rambo is penning the script which would cover their meeting at MGM before making “Woman of the Year” in 1942 to Tracy’s death in 1967, seventeen days after shooting wrapped on “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.”
Tracy was married throughout the affair, which was kept private with both maintaining separate residences. Hepburn didn’t speak about the affair until the early 1980s.
David Permut, John Dayton and Lisa Richardson will produce with a director and actors currently being sought.
