Shirley Maclaine will play Coco Chanel in an upcoming biopic, and it just gets weirder: The project is a Lifetime TV miniseries, which chronicles Chanel's later years returning to Paris, after exiling herself in Germany and Switzerland during World War II. According to Variety, the project is completely endorsed by both Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld, with costume designer Stefano de Nardis even getting archival research from the company. The program will run next year on Lifetime. Meanwhile, the Chanel feature-length movie, Coco Avant Chanel, has begun production in Paris, with Audrey Tautou as the lead. Demi Moore is still rumored to be in talks for an American Chanel movie, and we think that would be fantastic - but Angelina Jolie would be cool for the part, too.
