Rachel Weisz is set to step into some legendary Hollywood shoes for a new biopic. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Weisz has been loosely attached to portray actress Hedy Lamarr in the biopic Face Value.

It was said that the film will deal with the actreses life, but will primarily focus on her secondary life as a scientist. While she most was most noted for her role in Cecil B. DeMille's Samson and Delilah, she was just as celebrated - but lesser known - as a scientist who helped created a method of changing frequencies that is now a forerunner to wireless communications used today.

Amy Redford, daughter of Robert Redford, will direct from the script by Jose Rivera and Gretchen Somerfeld. No production schedule was given for the film.
