Joan Allen will play acclaimed American abstract artist Georgia O'Keefe in Georgia O'Keefe, a biopic for the Lifetime network. Jeremy Irons will also star in the film. This will be the second time the two actors will come together for a recent project, as Allen and Irons are set to star on Broadway in the new play Impressionism, which kicks off in March.
For the first time in her impressive career, Allen will assume executive producer duties on a film with this biopic, which is being produced by Sony Pictures TV and City Entertainment. The film is a serious passion project for the producers, has been in development for four years, and was even set up at HBO at one point. The story will follow the 20-year relationship between O'Keefe and photographer Alfred Steiglitz, played by Irons. The movie is scheduled to premiere during the third quarter of 2009.
