A little Audrey inspiration for you

No Comments 11 June 2008

I’ve been catching up with the guestbook entries, and there are so many sweet and lovely entries! I’m so glad the site makes so many people happy, helps them remember a wonderful woman, and helps newer generations discover her for themselves. While us girls may sigh once in a while, wishing we could look more like Audrey, someone by the name of Just Me has a perfect way of saying “Stay you”:

My Fair Lady remake is a reality

No Comments 09 June 2008

Bad news for those of you who feel that My Fair Lady was perfect the first time ’round on film: it is definitely being remade, and Keira Knightley is definitely going to play Eliza Doolittle. According to The Telegraph, Keira is officially signed to the movie and has already begun singing lessons (though it’s yet to show up on IMDb). Also, it seems that Daniel Day-Lewis will fill Rex Harrison’s rather large slippers as Professor Henry Higgins at least, if the producers get their wish. He’s at the top of their short list of actors for the role, though there’s no word on whether he’s signed yet.

Now that it’s official, what do you think as Audrey fans? There have been whispers that remaking an Audrey Hepburn film is a sort of curse to an actress’s career, since Audrey is held in such high regard by the public and filmmakers. Will this hurt Keira’s career, or push her closer to the top of the heap?

Keira Knightley still shadowing Audrey Hepburn?

No Comments 06 June 2008

There have been rumors swirling for years that Keira Knightley was in talks to do a big-screen biopic of Audrey Hepburn, and while nothing has ever come of those, a different rumor seems to have taken root. There were whispers that Keira might also star in a West End revival of My Fair Lady, and while those talks fell through, it looks as though a film remake of the musical will come to pass with Keira as Eliza Doolittle. The film is currently being looked at by Columbia Pictures, and will be “updated” by mixing the original George Bernard Shaw play script and Lerner & Loewe’s adaptation that became the film we know and love. This remake also promises to improve on the 1964 film by filming on location in Coventry Garden and other spots around London.

Mel Ferrer, Audrey Hepburn’s first husband, has died

No Comments 03 June 2008

The news hasn’t been up long, but actor Mel Ferrer died yesterday (Monday, June 2nd) at his home near Santa Barbara. He was 90.

Mel was Audrey’s first husband, and he and Audrey had one child together, son Sean Hepburn Ferrer, who now runs The Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund with his half brother Luca Dotti. You can read a little more about Mel in the few articles up so far [here and here], and I’ll keep checking back to see if any more news comes up.
