Jared Leto’s research for his upcoming role as Andy Warhol in the biopic based on Victor Bockris’s Warhol: The Biography is now underway.
Here he is on Friday with Warhol superstar Joe Dallesandro …
We’ve just closed an exciting deal for a first ever Russian edition of Warhol: The Biography with our friends at Palmyra in St Petersburg. This edition should be ready for early 2018 we hope.
Victor Bockris’s classic tome, first published in 1989 is, as we previously reported here, currently being made into a major feature film, with a script by the talented Terence Winter. Actor Jared Leto, who acquired the option from us (along with producer Mike De Luca) will be starring as Warhol himself. More news on that soon too.
This Russian edition will be the twelfth language edition of Warhol: The Biography!
I’m thrilled to have been the agent behind this film deal which I can now announce, after months of to and fro with our colleagues in Hollywood…
Jared Leto is going to play Andy Warhol in a biopic based on Victor Bockris’s epic Warhol: The Biography. We’ve optioned the book to Leto, who will also produce, and to producer Michael De Luca (Fifty Shades of Grey, The Social Network, Boogie Nights). Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire, The Sopranos, The Wolf of Wall Street) is already on board as the screenwriter.
There’ll be plenty more news on this project as it arises.
