Hedren shot to fame as the star of the director's 1963 horror The Birds, and she also appeared in his thriller Marnie a year later (64).

A new film based on biographer Donald Spoto's book, Spellbound By Beauty, will explore Hedren's relationship with the famed director, who allegedly became infatuated with the blonde beauty while they were working together.

Miller is said to have accepted the role of Hedren in the film and has already met with the actress, now 81, to discuss the role, according to Britain's Mail on Sunday.

The film, which also stars Imelda Staunton as Hitchcock's wife, Alma, will start shooting this month (Dec11) and will be screened on Britain's BBC2 TV channel next year (12).
