Ava DuVernay to direct 'The Battle Of Versailles' (which is a fashion movie not a war movie)






  • DuVernay is co-writing the movie which is an adaptation of The Battle Of Versailles: The Night American Fashion Stumbled Into The Spotlight And Made History

  • Based on the November 28, 1973 fashion show that took place at the Palace of Versailles where 5 French designers and five unknown American designers held competing fashion shows at Versailles as part of a funraiser




  • The Americans came out the winners and it was also considered revolutionary as a third of the models were African-American

  • Project is being produced for HBO films

  • In addition to this DuVernay has the upcoming OWN mini-series Queen Sugar starring Rutina Wesley coming out in 2016, A Wrinkle in Time adaptation for Disney, and an original Hurricane Katrina project starring David Oyelowo which she is supposed to be working on.
