The making of McQueen

The making of McQueen

 A film biopic will delve into the late fashion designer’s life and works

The success of McQueen the play and the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition at the V&A last year demonstrate the cachet the McQueen name continues to carry long after his death. Now, award-winning playwright Chris Urch will set to work on composing an original screenplay for McQueen the movie - a film providing a unique insight into the inner workings of the designer’s creative thought process and his most talked-about collections.

 Andrew Haigh will direct, his most recent work being the Oscar-nominated 45 Years. Cast and plot are yet to be confirmed however production is rumoured to start towards the end of the year.
