Sienna Miller just can't stay away from the '60s. First she played Andy Warhol's muse Edie Sedwick in Factory Girl, and now she's signed on for the lead in another peace-and-love era film, Hippie Hippie Shake. The movie, which also stars Cillian Murphy, is based on Richard Neville's memoir of the same title about the Oz magazine trial — the longest obscenity trial in British history — and the ultimate end of the swinging '60s era in London.
According to Variety:
The mag was transplanted to London, where Neville and his cohorts became the defendants in the longest obscenity trial in English legal history after a sexually explicit issue aroused the ire of the Obscene Publications Squad. The trial ended with the defendants sentenced to hard labor, but an appeal absolved them, with the provision that they stop publishing the magazine.
Murphy will play Neville; there's no word yet about Miller's character. The two of them also are working on another movie together: The Best Times of Our Lives, in which Miller is now playing the role originally intended for Lindsay Lohan.
