Judd in talks for Cole Porter biopic


Ashley Judd is in talks to star with Kevin Kline in "De-Lovely", a biopic about Cole Porter. Variety reports that Judd is in tune for the role of socialite Linda Lee Porter. She married Porter even though he was gay and was a source of inspiration for musical compositions that include "Anything Goes" and "Kiss Me Kate." She nursed him through a tragic accident in which he was trampled by a horse. After she died, he never wrote another song. The script was written by Jay Cocks (Gangs of New York) and the film will feature interludes from 30 Porter songs. The unusual love story will shoot in London starting May 5.
