THE PIC­TURE OF DO­RIAN GRAY TO HAVE FE­MALE LEAD

Marie Claire (Malaysia) - - Fashion -

Based on Os­car Wilde’s 1890 novel The Pic­ture of Do­rian Gray, Lion­s­gate fol­lows in the foot­steps of gen­der-swap­ping roles tra­di­tion­ally played by men. Sched­uled to be di­rected by ex­per­i­men­tal rock mu­si­cian St Vin­cent, the film stu­dio puts a twist on the story by writ­ing a wo­man into the role of Do­rian Gray. The classic Vic­to­rian story tells the tale of a young man who rev­els in his he­do­nis­tic ways of life, with the se­cret of a painted por­trait that ages – while he stays eter­nally youth­ful.
