Feud authors Jaffe Cohen and Michael Zam will write the script for a biopic about Vivien Leigh, Variety reports. The project does not yet have a name, but it is known that it will be based on Hugo Vickers' book Vivien Leigh: A Biography ("Vivien Leigh: Biography") about the life of an English actress and her relationship with Laurence Olivier, who was her husband from 1940 to 1960s.|
At one time, Lee received an Oscar for the role of the immortal heroine Scarlett O'Hara in the film Gone with the Wind, which conquered more than one generation of viewers. The film instantly brought her attention and fame, but Vivienne warned: “I'm not a movie star, I'm an actress. Being a movie star is like living a fake life filled with false values and unnecessary fame. ”
For the second time, members of the Academy celebrated the actress's skill in Desire Tram, re-awarding her the coveted statuette for Best Actress. Later, Vivienne confesses that Blanche DuBois from "Tram" took possession of her thoughts for a long time and ultimately drove her to madness. The actress suffered from bipolar disorder and had a hard time suffering from tuberculosis, due to which she left at the age of 53.
Jaffe Cohen and Michael Zam are already working on a project based on William Jay Mann's Wisecracker: The Life and Times of William Haines, Hollywood's First Openly Gay Star and Kate's biopic about the secret life of Katharine Hepburn.
