Jared Leto to Play Andy Warhol in Biopic


Jared Leto is starring in and producing an Andy Warhol biopic, titled “Warhol,” about the pop artist and cultural icon.  Leto will also serve as a producer for the film alongside Michael De Luca (one of the producers behind "The Social Network," "Captain Phillips" and "Fifty Shades of Grey," with Terrence Winter ("Vinyl") penning the screenplay basing it in part off the 1989 book by Victor Bockris, ‘Warhol: The Biography.’

According to ‘The Hollywood Reporter’ the 44-year-old Oscar winner and Luca are “not aiming for a low-budget indie with Warhol, but rather a strong mainstream project with prestige credentials.”

The ‘Suicide Squad’ actor is currently filming an untitled ‘Blade Runner’ sequel with director Denis Villeneuve.
