New lead role for Kate Winslet in 'The Dressmaker'

Kate Winslet is set to star in period drama The Dressmaker.

The Oscar-winning actress has signed on to lead Jocelyn Moorhouse's big-screen adaptation of Rosalie Ham's novel, reported Screen Daily.

In the 1950s-set movie, Kate will play Tilly, an "avenging angel" who returns home to her remote Australian country town, after fleeing when she was accused of murder as a child.

Now a successful dressmaker, she liberates and empowers the town's women with her wit and fashionable designs - while waiting to exact revenge on those who wronged her.

Shooting is expected to begin in Australia in the autumn.
