The Lonely Doll

Romancing the Tome Reader (and style blogger extraordinaire) Lauren Cerand tipped us off to an exciting new project from Killer Films (Boys Don't Cry, Velvet Goldmine, Happiness), Number 9 Films, and artist Julian Schnabel (Before Night Falls, Basquiat). They are collaborating on a biopic about the life of model turned author Dare Wright who wrote the Lonely Dolls series. Christine Vachon (of Killer Films) optioned Jean Nathan's book The Secret Life of the Lonely Doll: The Search for Dare Wright. lists the film as in pre-production and the cast appears to be undetermined as of yet. Post your casting picks in the comments section--we'd love to see them!

    Just to let you know, Jessica Lange and Naomi Watts have been approached respectively for the leads.

    In this months issue of INTERVIEW Magazine, Lange talks about the possibility of starring in Julian Schnabel's adaptation of The Secret Life of the Lonely Doll.
