Actress Kate Winslet is teaming up with her Oscar-winning director husband Sam Mendes to work on a new movie.
Winslet, who has been married to the American Beauty filmmaker for three years, has been interested in playing the role of 1920s circus tiger tamer Mabel Stark since 2003.
And now Mendes’ company, Neal Street Productions, has bought the rights to adapt a fictionalised life of Stark by author Robert Hough.
“It’s a great story, they’ve had their eye on it for a while. If they can get the script right, it would make a great film,” said a spokeswoman for the couple.
