Question: What’s the status of the biopic of 1960s British pop star Dusty Springfield, starring Charlize Theron?
Answer: Springfield—who died of breast cancer in 1999 at 59 after a troubled life—is the subject of two biopics, but Theron is not involved. Nicole Kidman will produce and star in one, and Michael Cunningham (The Hours) is writing the script. Before that, Kidman has another singing role—in Nine, set to start filming in October. Meanwhile, Kristin Chenoweth also is developing a Springfield biopic for herself that may be out first.
I honestly can't imagine either of them doing her justice. :( Hopefully she won't be portrayed as bisexual, as the early reports were suggesting.
IF YOU ARE UNFAMILIAR WITH DUSTY (which no one should be), WATCH THIS OR THIS.
