O’Connell, the BAFTA Rising Star winner who recently starred in Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken (2014/15), will lead the picture that is being adapted from Andrew Wilson’s biography ‘The Blood Beneath the Skin’. Chris Urch (Land of Our Fathers) has reportedly written the screenplay, and The Lady In the Van producer Damian Jones is currently set to produce.

The movie is due to begin principal photography in January 2017 and will follow O’Connell’s McQueen in the months leading up to one of the icon’s most famous fashion shows in 2009, the year prior to his death.
