Samara Weaving is set to star in Liz, a biopic about American founding mother and celebrity Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Adam Leon will direct the historical drama from a script by Gabriel Neustadt, with 3311 producing. A Baltimore socialite, Bonaparte was the daughter of a city merchant and the first wife of Jérome Bonaparte, Napoleon’s youngest brother, whom she first met in 1803.

Liz will depict her rise in America’s social scene on the strength of her celebrity and wit during Thomas Jefferson’s presidency.

After two lead roles in The Babysitter and Mayhem, Australian actress Weaving was offered her first starring role as a protagonist in Ready or Not, the horror-comedy from Fox Searchlight, the same studio that worked with Weaving on Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
