The biopic will trace Hepburn's journey from her childhood days in Holland, her emergence as one of most iconic personalities in film and fashion, with such works  as Roman Holiday and Breakfast At Tiffany's marking her career, and her final years working as a philanthropist.

On Tuesday, Wildside said that the biography penned by Luca and Luigi explored different facets of Hepburn's life.  “In writing the New York Times best-seller, Audrey At Home, Luca and Luigi explored the singularity of Audrey's real self and discovered along the way that it all matched. The muse, the mother and the later humanitarian all closely relate to a girl that never stopped to be amazed by the gift of life,” a statement by Wildside said, as per The Hollywood Reporter.

Production of the project is set to start in 2020, the same report informed. Wildside has been previously associated with The Young Pope, starring Jude Law and My Brilliant Friend. 

Hepburn, born in Brussels, Belgium in 1929, died in 1993 at age 63 of cancer.
