Miller & Jones To Play Hedren & Hitchcock

Sienna Miller and Toby Jones will play Tippi Hedren and Alfred Hitchcock respectively in the Julian Jarrold-directed BBC Two drama “The Girl” reports Deadline.

The telemovie will chronicle the famed director’s obsessive relationship with his “The Birds” leading lady, a previously unknown fashion model.

Hitchcock became obsessed with her and his failure to win her affections arguably destroyed both of their careers.

Hedren has given interviews to writer Gwyneth Hughes, while Hitchcock biographer Donald Spoto is attached as a consultant.

Imelda Staunton and Penelope Wilton also star. Shooting starts this week in South Africa.
