Day-Lewis to play dress­maker in his last film

Khaleej Times - City Times - - SKY FULL OF STARS -

Os­car-win­ning Ac­tor Daniel Day-Lewis, who an­nounced his re­tire­ment from films last week, has re­port­edly made plans to go out with a bang by play­ing a dress­maker in his last film.

The ac­tor’s last film will be di­rected by Paul Thomas An­der­son and is slated for a re­lease in 2018.

“He’s so method, it takes him three years to pre­pare for a role. He was telling friends he re­ally wanted to go out with a bang,” a source told pa­ge­six.com.

The source added that Day-Lewis did such in­tense re­search and learned so much about cou­ture fash­ion for his fi­nal film play­ing “an un­com­pro­mis­ing dress­maker com­mis­sioned by roy­alty and high so­ci­ety” that he will stick with the pro­fes­sion off screen and be­come a dress­maker.

The un­ti­tled movie that’s set to close his act­ing ca­reer, tells the story of a dress­maker, who is com­mis­sioned to de­sign for mem­bers of high so­ci­ety and roy­alty, set on the height of the 1950s Lon­don fash­ion scene.

Day-Lewis will be joined by Les­ley Manville and Camilla Ruther­ford in the film.

Three times a win­ner Day-Lewis has bagged the Best Ac­tor hon­our at the Os­cars three times for his roles in the films My Left Foot (1989), There Will Be Blood (2007) and Lin­coln (2013).
