Errol Morris to Direct Photo Journalist Biopic 'Weegee'
Self-named Weegee the Famous, Fellig was a street photographer that began working in 1930s New York chasing police cars and ambulances to capture life and death in the city. His work appeared in Vogue and Life, among other newspapers and magazines.
“Weegee may not have singlehandedly invented the noir sensibility, but without him, noir would be unimaginable,” said Morris. “He recognized he was constructing his own vision of reality, replete with vivid characters — rich, poor, depraved, and otherwise.”
