Apple TV+ is seriously stepping up its film game with another star-studded project on its slate – and, moreover, a star-studded project about a star.
The tech company has been gradually growing the profile of its original movies in the past year, with awards contenders Coda, Swan Song and Finch on its books, not to mention the impending debut of Joel Coen’s The Tragedy of Macbeth. Now, it’s lining up an Audrey Hepburn biopic. Rooney Mara will play the Breakfast at Tiffany’s icon, with an equally impressive name at the helm: Luca Guadagnino.
Deadline reports that Mara will produce the film as well as star, with Vinyl EP Michael Mitnick penning the script.
