Niki Caro to direct biopic about Maria Callas


You know that old stereotype about opera singers – that they’re all dramatic, talented prima donnas? Yeah, that’s Maria Callas. She’s the one who made that larger-than-life personality so famous that it became cultural legend.

Niki Caro has decided to begin writing and directing a biopic about the first lady of opera, working with Alfonso Signorini to adapt his book about Callas, Too Proud, Too Fragile. I’m wondering who they could get to play the American-born Greek soprano, since she seems so iconic. Anyone got any ideas?
