Diane Arbus photograph of Brooklyn family

Last week, it was announced that Samantha Morton would play photographer Diane Arbus in a film about Arbus's life called Fur. Steven Shainberg, who directed Secretary, will direct, and Secretary screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson will write this screenplay, based on the Arbus biography by Patricia Bosworth. Gothamist is pretty excited, because we love Arbus's work (especially photographs of NY life), and Morton has the kind of attitude that could pull this off. Here's an Arbus bio from About.com, plus two galleries of her work: One from the SF Moma and the other from Temple University. And more books with photographs by Arbus.
