Millennium developing 'Flynn' biopic
Based on Errol Flynn's son, who disappeared in 1970Sean Flynn, the son of Hollywood icon Errol Flynn, is set to get his big-screen moment.
The late offspring of the classic actor is the subject of "Flynn," a feature that Millennium is developing with Ralph Hemecker's Mythic Pictures.
Hemecker, a prolific TV writer who created the TNT movie "Witchblade," will direct; he is writing the screenplay with Perry Deane Young, who also wrote the book on which "Flynn" will be based.
The movie will serve as a biopic of Sean Flynn, a photojournalist who disappeared in the Cambodian jungle in 1970 and was never heard from again. Both Flynn, a Time correspondent, and a CBS colleague are believed to have been captured by either the Viet Cong or the Khmer Rouge, both of whom were highly active in the area Flynn was working.
Flynn, the only son of Errol Flynn and Lili Damita, worked as an actor for several years before turning to journalism. He appeared in a sequel to "Captain Blood," in which father of course starred.
