It's been a pretty good couple of days for fans of Kate Winslet, of which there are plenty. Not only did we get a new trailer for period drama A Little Chaos, but now we're getting a first look at an upcoming project, plus news on what she'll be starring in next.
First up, Screen Daily has an image from Jocelyn Moorehouse's The Dressmaker, which stars Winslet as "a glamorous woman with a penchant for haute couture who returns to her small town in rural Australia to exact revenge on those who previously did her wrong." And this image certainly shows of the film's fashion sense, so mark this one down as a potential awards film for costume design next year. The Dressmaker co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Hugo Weaving, opening in Australia next October.
And then there's word from Variety that Winslet is in talks to join Michael Fassbender, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, and Michael Stuhlbarg in Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs biopic. Her exact role in the Aaron Sorkin-penned film remains a mystery but it will be the female lead. That film is now set up at Universal after being dropped by Sony.
