Peter Morgan to write Hugh Hefner biopic for Warner Bros.
That classy man who has possibly the best job in the world, Hugh Hefner, finally has someone to write his biopic.
When he's not knee deep in blondes wearing their unmentionables, the Hef occasionally takes to Twitter to discuss the on-goings of his life. Today, Hef offered this up:
I had a good meeting today with screen writer Peter Morgan discussing a film about my life.— Hugh Hefner (@hughhefner) July 17, 2012
The project started over at Imagine Entertainment then moved to Warner Bros. With Peter Morgan (THE QUEEN, FROST/NIXON) on board, this could be something quite good. Hefner already has had a very interesting life. Playboy was founded by Hefner in 1953 and featured Marilyn Monroe on the first cover. Great starting off point, right? The publication wasn't just about the nudies, there were also articles from featured novelists and cartoons from notable artists. There were also interviews on politicians, celebrities, and everyone in between.
There are currently no other details on the project.
