"Uncredited — The Marni Nixon Story" is the title of the film, which is based on Nixon's book, "I Could Have Sung All Night." The Nixon film will mark the first project for Brakefield, the company launched by marketing executive Shawna L. Brakefield.
No casting or timetable has been announced for the Nixon film.
Nixon is perhaps best known for dubbing the vocal performances of such film stars as Audrey Hepburn (in "My Fair Lady"), Deborah Kerr (in "The King and I") and Natalie Wood (in "West Side Story"). In "I Could Have Sung All Night" — penned by Nixon with Stephen Cole — she recalls her numerous Hollywood and Broadway experiences, including working with Julie Andrews, Leonard Bernstein, Liberace, Cary Grant, Otto Preminger and Victor Borge.
Marni Nixon was most recently on Broadway in the Tony-winning revival of Nine, and her other Main Stem credits include Follies, James Joyce's The Dead and The Girl in the Pink Tights. She played Aunt Alice in the film "I Think I Do" and Sister Sophia in the motion picture of "The Sound of Music." Nixon was recently seen as Mother Abbess in the Hollywood Bowl's presentation of The Sound of Music.
Nixon was seen earlier this season in the City Center Encores! staging of Music in the Air.
