Kate Winslet has been announced as the star of a new biopic about Vogue cover model-turned-war correspondent Lee Miller.  

The film, called Lee, will follow the life and experiences of the photojournalist as she travels to the frontline of World War II and tries to expose the horrific truths of the Nazis. Throughout her journey she then comes to realise the truths of her own past.

The film will be directed by Ellen Kuras who was the cinematographer of Kate’s 2004 hit film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which also starred Jim Carrey. Ms Kuras told Deadline: 'Since our experience together on Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Kate and I have talked often about collaborating on something of our own.'
