Alexander McQueen Film In The Works: Fashion Designer's Life Will Be Brought To The Big Screen

Alexander McQueen's life will be made into a major Hollywood film this year.

According to Deadline, a biopic of the late fashion designer's rise and fall is already in the works - with '45 Years' director Andrew Haigh signing on to direct it.

Playwright Chris Urch is writing the screenplay, which will be partially based on the biographical book 'Alexander McQueen: Blood Beneath The Skin' by Andrew Wilson.

News of the film comes as no surprise considering the sell-out success of the V&A exhibition 'Savage Beauty' and the West End play 'McQueen'.

There is no word yet on who will play Lee McQueen himself, nor close friends Kate Moss, Isabella Blow or David Bowie, but we can't help but get excited already.
