It looks as though the queen of creepy-looking celebrity wax sculptures is going to be getting her own piece of art, this time, of a celluloid nature.

Variety is reporting that Madame Tussaud will be getting a biopic. Entitled MADAME T, the film is being penned by Alessandro Camon and Bruno Ledoux, with Stephane Sperry producing. The film will look at the icon’s interest in art in Paris in the late 1700s, up until her experience in the French Revolution where she created “death masks.”

While this may sound like a bit of a weird premise, there is a lot of talent here. Camon is best known for his work on THE MESSENGER, and with Sperry producing, you have the same man who backed Steven Spielberg’s upcoming film, THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: THE SECRET OF THE UNICORN. Personally, I think this could ultimately work, but I’d need casting information and a director before I got really excited. This premise sounds a bit underwhelming, but it’s the story of a person that I’m not all that familiar with, so this is just the type of biopic I think could really work.

What do you think?
