First look for the upcoming biopic ‘Florence Foster Jenkins’ starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant has been unveiled.
The Stephen Frears directed project, which is currently shooting in the UK, shows Streep and Grant as a couple, Deadline.com reported.
Nicholas Martin penned the screenplay for the biopic, which centers on the real-life New York heiress and socialite in the 1940s, who was fixated at pursuing a career as a great opera singer, but didn’t really have any skills for it.
The film, which is being produced by Michael Kuhn for Qwerty Films along with Frears’ longtime collaborator, Tracey Seaward, also stars Simon Helberg, Rebecca Ferguson and Nina Arianda.
Pathe’s Cameron McCracken, BBC Films’ Christine Langan and Qwerty’s Malcolm Ritchie are exec producers.
