McQueen will be honoured with an official biopic.
Pathe Productions (‘Suffragette’, ‘Selma’, ‘Mandela’) is the official producer of the movie that’ll celebrate the life of Britain’s most innovative designers, who was often described as the “the hooligan of English fashion”.
Announced to be playing the fashion icon is Jack O’Connell, who’s also in films ‘Tulip Fever’, ‘Robot & Scarecrow‘ and ‘The Man with The Iron Heart’. Andrew Haigh has been confirmed as the official director for the untitled Alexander McQueen movie while Chris Urch makes his debut as a credited writer.
The announcement of the leading actor is the latest news about the film. The remaining cast has not been finalised yet. Therefore, NWD will continue to keep track of the latest updates in regards to the film’s progression.
