Fur: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Samantha Morton is in negotiations to play Diane Arbus in a biopic of the seminal American photographer's life to be titled Fur and to be directed by Steven Shainberg.

Arbus, considered one of the greatest American photographers of the 20th century, was known for creating images that were often bizarre or disturbing. She committed suicide in 1971. The project reteams Shainberg, who is an avid collector of American photography, with his Secretary screenwriter, Erin Cressida Wilson.

Wilson is adapting the "Fur" screenplay from Patricia Bosworth's book "Diane Arbus: A Biography."
