The legendary Katharine Hepburn is getting the biopic treatment, based on the 2007 biography Kate: The Woman Who Was Hepburn by William J. Mann.
An upcoming independent film will feature two sides of Hepburn’s legacy, the 25-year-old breaking into Hollywood and the 80-year-old looking back on it. Producer Richard Akel told IndieWire: “This is not the Kate Hepburn of public legend, including all those Tracy-Hepburn pictures, but rather the much more fascinating and complex private woman.”
Here are a few ladies who could possibly do Hepburn justice:
2. Cate Blanchett
3. Amy Adams
4. Tilda Swinton
5. Greta Gerwig
6. Rachel McAdams
8. Lizzy Caplan
9. Jessica Chastain
10. Hilary Swank
