Four years after it was first announced in August 2010, Reese Witherspoon's Untitled Peggy Lee Project is moving forward once again, with Todd Haynes now set to direct.

Nora Ephron was initially attached to write and direct the biopic, although the project stalled after she passed away in June 2012. Doug Wright (Quills, Two Lovers) performed a rewrite of the screenplay. No story details were given, except that it will follow the life of famed singer Peggy Lee, whose career spanned more than 7 decades after her first #1 hit single, "Something Else Is Taking Place" debuted in 1942. The singer passed away at the age of 82 in 2002.

Reese Witherspoon is also producing alongside Marc Platt for Fox 2000, the same company that made Walk the Line, which earned the actress her first Oscar win. No production schedule was released at this time.

Todd Haynes' last directorial effort was 2007's I'm Not There, and he is currently in post-production on Carol. His other credits include Far From Heaven and the mini-series Mildred Pierce.
