“Valmont” star Annette Bening eyed for “Will Success Spoil Mrs. Miller?”

PanARMENIAN.Net - Scott Sanders Productions is bringing the 1960s singing sensation, Mrs. Miller, to the big screen with the feature film, “Will Success Spoil Mrs. Miller?” which is being packaged with a view to Annette Bening starring in the project, TheWrap said.

Based on a script by the young New York writer Matthew Fantaci (“The Look”), the film revolves around the 59-year-old singing sensation who shot to fame performing popular songs from the period, including rock-and-roll hits, such as “A Hard Day’s Night,” despite having little talent.

“Will Success Spoil Mrs. Miller?” is the name of the singer’s 1966 album, which includes rendition of songs such as “Strangers in The Night” and “The Girl From Ipanema.”

The singer’s first album, “Mrs. Miller’s Greatest Hits” sold 250,000 copies in three weeks, and became one of the most-talked about and played albums in the country. Mrs. Miller fan clubs were subsequently organized, and she appeared on a number of television variety shows.

Bening’s recent credits include “Imogene” and “Ginger & Rosa.” Her upcoming projects include the Austrian-set period piece, “The Great,” and “The Look of Love.”
