With the news that the Katharine Hepburn-Spencer Tracy romance is getting the big-screen treatment in “Tracy and Hepburn,” we at TOH! have two polls for you: Who should play Hepburn? Who should play Tracy?
The film will reportedly cover the stars’ 27-year relationship, from when they first met on the MGM lot while making “Woman of the Year” (pictured above), to Tracy’s death only days after wrapping his final scene in 1967’s “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.” They made nine films together and, while never married, Hepburn and Tracy’s love affair was an open secret in Hollywood. The project is being produced by Permut Presentations and Reunion Pictures, and is penned by TV scribe David Rambo (“CSI,” “Revolution”).
So, which actors would be best suited to play the iconic pair? Sadly, the late Philip Seymour Hoffman would have been a great candidate for Tracy.
