15 Feb - After much speculations, it was revealed that the upcoming Tom Holland-starring Fred Astaire movie has finally found its director.
Paul King, who is known for his "Paddington" movies, will be helming the biopic, which will see the "Spider-Man" star playing the celebrated dancer-actor of the Golden Age.
Not much is known about the movie, except that it will be revolving around the relationship between Fred Astaire and his sister Adele.
It is noted that the two were part of a vaudeville act in which Adele was the star, but that the two parted ways after she got married. Fred then went on to focus on his career in Hollywood and subsequently becoming a star.
Aside from Paul King, it was revealed that the script is now being rewritten by Lee Hall, known for the coming-of-age comedy, "Billy Elliot". Hall previously worked with Holland in the West End musical adaptation of the movie.
The project is not to be confused with "Fred & Ginger", another biopic that stars Jamie Bell and Margaret Qualley, which revolves around Astaire's relationship with his dance partner, Ginger Rogers.
