The story of Katharine Hepburn is on its way to the silver screen.
Based on William J. Mann’s “Kate: The Woman Who Was Hepburn”, independent producers Richard Akel, Janice Hammond and Michael Mosca are developing the film that will focus on the star’s early years in Hollywood.
Variety brings the news of the Hepburn biopic and reports that the film will explore how she went from an outsider to one of the greatest stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age.
“Producers plan to surround the main story of the ambitious 25-year-old with accounts of an androgynous teen and a cantankerous 80-year-old legend trying to make peace with the personal costs demanded by her career,” reports Variety.
Mann will exec produce the project which will be directed by Clare Beavan. Michael Zam and Jaffe Cohen will adapt the script.
“This is not the Kate Hepburn of public legend, including all those Tracy-Hepburn pictures but rather the much more fascinating and complex private woman,” Akel said. “In reality, she was far more interesting and ultimately more inspiring than the myth she created.”
