eOne has acquired the worldwide rights to Kate Winslet’s World War II Lee Miller biopic. Deadline reports the film will tell the true story of renowned American photojournalist Elizabeth ‘Lee’ Miller, who refused to let survivors’ stories of Nazi concentration camps like Buchenwald and Dachau be lost to history. She also covered other huge events during the war including the liberation of Paris and the London Blitz. Winslet has reportedly been attached to the biopic for two years now, so clearly it’s a passion project for her. The biopic is very exciting considering the importance of someone like Miller to both World War II and many prevailing current societal issues.
The biopic is currently without a release date, title or director. But we will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
