Los Angeles: The story of the relationship between Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy could be headed for the silver screen, according to a report by Variety on Friday.
The movie, which Variety said was in development under the title Tracy and Hepburn, would begin with the couple’s first meeting during the making of Woman of the Year in 1942 and end with Tracy’s death in 1967 after the two worked together on Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, according to the magazine.
The duo starred in nine movies together. Their turbulent love affair was reportedly characterised by Tracy’s struggle with alcoholism.
The love affair between Hepburn and Tracy was an open secret in Hollywood. The Catholic Tracy remained married throughout the 27-year-long relationship and Hepburn only began speaking about the affair in the early 1980s, according to media reports.
Hepburn died in 2003 at the age of 96.
David Rambo wrote the script for independent producers Permut Presentations and Reunion Pictures, according to deadline.com. The producers are still looking for a director and lead actors, the website said.
