Jack O'Connell to Play Late Designer Alexander McQueen

Jack O’Connell is set to play the late fashion designer Alexander McQueen in an upcoming untitled biopic based on the legendary man’s life.

The movie will follow the preparation for Alexander‘s 2009 fashion show, which is considered to be one of his best.

“In 2009, Alexander McQueen put on one of his greatest shows – a stunningly beautifully re-working of his greatest designs from the past 15 years,” Pathé, the studio behind the film, said in a statement (via Deadline). “It was a show that he dedicated to his mother and one in which he tried to make sense of his life and art. The film explores McQueen’s creative process in the months leading up to the show providing an intimate portrait of the man behind the global brand – a moving celebration of a visionary genius whose designs transcended fashion to become art.”

Andrew Haigh will direct and Damian Jones is producing. Jack is best known for his lead roles in the films Unbroken and Money Monster.
