Author Patricia Highsmith's work has made it onto the big screen.
Now she herself will make an appearance — well, sort of.
Deadline reports that Helen Mirren will play Highsmith in an upcoming movie called Switzerland.
The film's plot mirrors one of Highsmith's Tom Ripley novels, according to Deadline.
In it, Highsmith's solitary existence in the Swiss Alps is interrupted by a literary agent who tries to persuade her to write one more Ripley novel.
Her attempts to push him away go, of course, awry.
No details yet on when filming will start (or when the movie might release) or other casting details.
