Hackford To Direct Tennessee Williams Biopic

Hollywood director TAYLOR HACKFORD is taking the life of legendary playwright TENNESSEE WILLIAMS to the big screen.
Dame Helen Mirren's film maker husband will direct Tenn, which will detail Williams' difficult upbringing and the depression he suffered throughout his life - as well as how the hardships he endured fuelled his writing.
Williams, who died in 1983 aged 71, wrote some of American theatre's great classics including A Streetcar Named Desire, The Glass Menagerie and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
Producer Michael Ohoven claims the movie will bear similarities to Bennett Miller's Oscar-winning Truman Capote biopic Capote - which he also produced.
He tells Daily Variety, "I had that same incredible feeling reading this script that I had on Capote and here again is an extremely dramatic story about how a torn and twisted life led Williams to write such great successes."
