Madame Tussaud pic in the works

Stephane Sperry to produce feature of wax-figure artist/revolutionary

Madame Tussaud is getting her own lifelike reproduction on the bigscreen: Stephane Sperry has come on to produce “Madame T,” a biopic of the famous wax-figure artist and revolutionary.

Script by Alessandro Camon and Bruno Ledoux showcases the Swiss wax sculptor’s life, beginning with her budding interest in her art while in Paris in the late 1700s to her harrowing experiences in the French Revolution creating death masks and barely surviving the guillotine herself.

Sperry will produce through his Liaison Films along with Ledoux and Double Entente Films. Script is currently out to directors, so no production start date has been set. While this is the first known biopic to feature Tussaud (aka Marie Grossholz), auds will know her from the worldwide chain of wax museums that bear her name.

Announcement also comes after the recent release of Michelle Moran tome “Madame Tussaud: A Novel of the French Revolution.”

Camon, best known for writing “The Messenger,” just finished work penning “Headshot.” Sperry most recently served as an exec producer on Steven Spielberg’s “Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn.”

WME, which reps Sperry, is packaging the project. Camon is repped by Original Artists.
