Georgina Chapman’s connection to the film indsutry is no secret, but Harvey Weinstein’s better half (pictured) has yet to take a turn in the director’s chair—until now. The Marchesa designer is reportedly starting small with a short film collaboration with Canon as part of its Project Imagination program, in which she will create a movie based upon photos submitted by Canon users. She follows in the footsteps of actor and director Ron Howard, who also collaborated with Canon on a film, which was later shown at Sundance and the Tribeca Film Festival. (Howard will serve as Chapman’s mentor on the project.) Perhaps Chapman will be on the red carpet at the next round of film festivals making her debut as a director.
