Even before we heard it was a rumor, it’s been quashed: As his next project, Ang Lee definitely will not be casting Charlize Theron and Kate Moss as legendary singer Dusty Springfield and her lover, respectively, in a hot lesbian biopic. Because there is no such picture in the works. Pity. Shellhammer at Queerty snips this blurb from USA Today.
“It came from a couple bites on the Internet that collided,” says James Schamus, Brokeback producer and longtime Lee collaborator. “It showed up on one of these gossip sites, and Ang and I were like, ‘Huh? What?’ I’m a Dusty Springfield fan but it’s all completely fabricated.”
And by “one of these gossip sites,” did he mean one of those gossip sites? You know, wink wink?
