Todd Haynes to direct Peggy Lee biopic
Todd Haynes is set to direct the untitled Peggy Lee biopic, which has Reese Witherspoon starring as the legendary singer.
The project was originally developed with Nora Ephron writing and directing but after her death in 2012, it was put on hold.
Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Doug Wright signed on to do a rewrite of the screenplay and now with the current success Witherspoon is experiencing with her performance in Wild, the Peggy Lee project is back on.
Marc Platt will produce the film which has remained in development at Fox 2000.
