The film will focus on Miller’s life, including their work as a war correspondent for Vogue during World War II. It’s being directed by Ellen Kuras and features a cast comprised of Marion Cotillard, Jude Law, Andrea Riseborough, and Josh O’Connor in addition to Winslet. The screenplay has been adapted from the book, The Lives of Lee Miller, which was written by her son, Antony Penrose.
“A woman I admire tremendously and whom I am so thrilled to be playing in this film,” Winslet previously said of Lee. “An extreme lover, thinker, life liver, cook, Vogue cover girl, war correspondent, icon, mother.”
Winslet most recently starred in HBO’s Mare of Easttown. She’s also known for her roles in Titanic, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and more.
