A little update on that Kate Winslet/Vivienne Westwood rumour for you – apparently it is true. The actress has been confirmed by Westwood’s label to play the designer in an upcoming biopic.
“The script is going well and Kate will play Vivienne,” a spokesperson said. “It has been a long time in the planning but we’re very excited that it’s happening.”
Once a script has been finalised, Winslet is expected to spend time with Dame Westwood, in order to get the most out of her performance. The film is said to follow the designer’s success from her punk days to now.
