Who Can Play Peggy Guggenheim?

guggenheim-re_443406tI once met Peggy Guggenheim, in Venice. She took one withering look at me and announced, “If you were ten years older, we could have something.” (I was 20; she was 78.) A biopic about her is in the works. I’m wondering just how explicit it could be: The extraordinary life of this bohemian doyenne of the 20th-century art world should be full of sex and painting. Will Hollywood balk? The project sounds like a much better fit for cable TV: is Joan Allen, who recently played Georgia O’Keefe, available?
