Kate Winslet to Star in Lee Miller Film

Kate Winslet will play American fashion model, artist and war correspondent Elizabeth “Lee” Miller in an untitled film to be produced by Troy Lum and Andrew Mason of Hopscotch Features.

The film will document Miller’s life and provide a personal glimpse of some of her most defining moments, as told in her son Antony Penrose’s biography, “The Lives of Lee Miller.”

Miller was a muse and collaborator to famous artists such as Pablo Picasso and Man Ray, an acclaimed photojournalist documenting some of the most important moments in history, a witness to wartime atrocities and one of the most glamorous women of her time.

Miller’s work is largely known today due to the efforts of Penrose, who has been conserving and promoting his mother’s work since the early 1980s. The producers have obtained exclusive access to the Lee Miller Archives, which is curated and managed by Penrose and includes all of Miller’s photos and diaries.

Producers will next look for a writer to adapt the material into a feature film.

Winslet is currently riding another wave of strong reviews for her starring role opposite Michael Fassbender in Universal’s “Steve Jobs” biopic, where she plays Joanna Hoffman, one of the original members of the Macintosh development team. Winslet also stars in “The Dressmaker,” which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. She has the John Hillcoat project “Triple 9” bowing next year.

Winslet is repped by CAA and United Agents.
