Jack O’Connell to play Alexander McQueen
Jack O’Connell has signed on to play Alexander McQueen in the untitled biopic by Pathe.
Andrew Haigh (“45 Years”) will direct for a script by Chris Urch. Based on the book “Blood Beneath the Skin” by Andrew Wilson, the film will explore McQueen’s creative process in the months leading up to his 2009 show, providing an intimate portrait of the man behind the global brand — a moving celebration of a visionary genius whose designs transcended fashion to become art.
Filming is set to start next spring.
