Sienna Miller (pictured below; G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) and Toby Jones (Red Lights, The Hunger Games, The Mist) are to play Tippi Hedren and Alfred Hitchcock, respectively, in BBC Two drama, The Girl.
The film will chronicle the director’s obsessive relationship with his The Birds star. According to BBC Two, Hedren has cooperated by giving interviews to writer Gwyneth Hughes while Hitchcock biographer Donald Spoto is attached as a consultant. Miller and Hedren recently met to discuss the project and, says Hughes, “got on like a house on fire.” Becoming Jane’s Julian Jarrold is directing with Imelda Staunton and Penelope Wilton also in the cast.
Hitchcock was at the height of his fame and creativity when, in 1962, he chose an unknown fashion model to star in his most ambitious film – The Birds. But as he sculpted Hedren into the perfect Hitchcock blonde of his imagination, he became obsessed with the impossible dream of winning the real woman’s love. His failure arguably destroyed both of their careers.
