David Fincher to produce Dorothea Lange biopic.

01 August 2011

Director David Fincher is set to lend his support as a producer to a biopic based on the life of photographer Dorothea Lange.

Dorothea Lange was one of the best-known photographers of the depression era, and photographed the iconic image of the Migrant Mother.

Fincher is currently working on the post production of his version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and as he will be exec producing the future project, David B. Ginsberg will be producing.

The film’s script is currently being worked on by Angela Workman, while the director of the film will be documentary maker Leslie Dektor.

Lange, who was born in 1895 in New Jersey, became one of the most prominent photographers of the Great Depression, a considerable achievement considering she suffered from polio as a child and suffered ailments throughout her life relating to a limp she was left with following her bought with the disease.

The Migrant Mother image for which she is best known is said to be the inspiration behind John Steinbeck’s The Grapes Of Wrath.

The film should now hopefully reach a wider audience with Fincher helping to produce the biopic, and should hopefully bring a whole new audience to Miss Lange’s work.

Fincher’s current project The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo will open on December 26th of this year.
