Georgia O’Keeffe

Waterfall-OkeefeWe get word today about a new biopic bringing to light the life and times of Georgia O’Keeffe. We get the following scoop thanks to the art caves of Yahoo:

Joan Allen and Jeremy Irons are set to star in a Lifetime biopic about the late artist Georgia O’Keeffe. The project, dubbed “Georgia O’Keeffe,” will follow the turbulent, 20-year love affair between the celebrated artist (Allen) and photographer Alfred Steiglitz (Irons). The movie, set to premiere in third-quarter 2009, has been in development for four years; at one stage, it was set up at HBO.

Bob Balaban is on board to direct from a script by Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Cristofer (“Gia”). Allen also will take on executive producer duties for the first time.

Often when I am eating fig newtons i consider the works of Georgia O’Keeffe.

A number of biopics are coming down the pipe but this one certainly seems to rise to the top, full of promise. When you throw Jeremy Irons together with a Pulitzer Prize winning author, on paper you have something that looks to be a winner.

I wasn’t a fan of Appaloosa but it was good to see Irons in it. I like the cut of his jib and it was cool to see him as a shady western villain.

I am not very familiar with the story of O’Keefe but look forward to seeing it unfold on the silver screen. We will be sure to keep you updated on the progress of the project, and abreast of any developments.

  1. I always find it odd that the most talented artists that rely on people to support their careers, really don’t like people! Her times at Ghost Ranch and Abiquiu, NM are truly fascinating along with the tales of her interactions with the locals. I also find it amusing that the place she was so connected to (Abiquiu & Ghost Ranch) was never once visited by Steiglitz. I guess she didnt even like to share with her husband. I hope they do a good job with the movie!

      True but when you take a close look at the center intricacies of many upon many flowers, several display similar attributes to those of the female and male genitialia, no secret there. It’s all part of natures allurement factor.
