Variety is reporting that Audrey Tautou, star of Amelie and The Da Vinci Code, will take the lead in an upcoming French biopic about fashion icon Coco Chanel.
The movie, which has yet to be titled, will focus mostly on Chanel's early years as an orphan and cabaret singer. Tautou, who was a lynchpin in getting the project off the ground, will be directed by Anne Fontaine.
The Coco Chanel biopic will begin shooting in 2008.
