Exclusive: Embankment to launch feature doc from Churchill producers.
McQueen will chart the story of how the working-class Englishman rose from Savile Row tailor’s apprentice to become one of the most celebrated fashion designers in the world before his untimely death.
Ian Bonhôte (Alleycats), the co-founder of Pulse Films who recently launched production outfit Misfits with Ryder, will direct in collaboration with screenwriter Peter Ettedgui (Listen to Me, Marlon).
Bonhôte said: “I moved to London from Paris in the ‘90s much in part because of McQueen. His sense of style became synonymous with the city’s raw energy and edginess, and I know of no other contemporary designer to ignite such an immediate visceral response from an audience – it was so exhilarating.”

Cmg is planning a theatrical release for June to coincide with the 73rd anniversary of the 1944 invasion. Miranda Richardson and John Slattery also star in “Churchill,” directed by Jonathan Teplitzky (“The Railway Man”) from a script by Alex von Tunzelmann.
The film is set in June, 1944, as a million Allied forces are assembled on the south coast of England on the brink of the greatest invasion in history with the landing on the beaches of Normandy, France – the first step in the campaign to free Europe from Nazi Germany. But Churchill fears that if the invasion fails, history will remember him chiefly as an architect of carnage.
