Story by Jack Foley

KATE Winslet is to play Lee Miller, the Vogue cover model turned Second World War correspondent, in new biopic Lee.

Ellen Kuras has signed on to direct from a screenplay that has been adapted by Liz Hannah from the book The Lives of Lee Miller by Anthony Penrose, Lee’s son.

Penrose and the Miller estate have granted the production access to the Lee Miller archives, which include all of her photos and diaries.

The film will follow Miller as she travels to the front lines of World War II as a photojournalist and goes on a mission to expose the hidden truths of Nazi Germany. But in the aftermath of betrayal, she comes to a reckoning about the truths of her own past.

Kuras, a veteran Hollywood cinematographer and director, said in a statement: “Since our experience together on Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Kate and I have talked often about collaborating on something of our own. Lee gives us an irresistible opportunity to do that with a script written by Liz Hannah, a brilliant writer whom we admire so much.”

Lee is set to start production in spring 2021.
