Andrew Haigh will follow his work on Looking and on 45 Years (which nabbed Charlotte Rampling her first Oscar nomination) with a biopic on the late fashion-designer icon Alexander McQueen.
The Film Experience offers helpful casting suggestions:
Tom Hardy (he can approximate the look), Russell Tovey (he’s already worked with Haigh), Dane DeHaan (has the right intensity but would require quite the physical transformation). An inspired suggestion was a young Toby Jones!! Other characters from McQueen’s life who might appear in the movie are his muses Isabella Blow and Kate Moss.
