Weisz to play Lamarr — and maybe Delilah too?


The Hollywood Reporter says Rachel Weisz has been tapped to play Hollywood legend — and noted scientist! — Hedy Lamarr in Face Value, an indie film to be directed by Amy Redford, daughter of Robert. The Reporter also notes that Lamarr was “most famous” for co-starring in Cecil B. DeMille’s Samson and Delilah (1949), the first of the post-war Bible epics. (Samson was played by Victor Mature.) Will the new film depict the making of DeMille’s film in any way, shape or form? Will Weisz have to wear a Philistine costume? Obsessive Bible-movie buffs need to know.

    I’m glad the film will focus on Lamarr’s scientific accomplishments as well as her very dramatic life.
    Should be quite an improvement over Andy Warhol’s 1966 film “Hedy” when she was played by drag queen Mario Montez!
