Peter Morgan to Write Hugh Hefner Biopic for Warner Bros.
Producer Jerry Weintraub is developing the film about the Playboy founder.
Peter Morgan is in negotiations to write the Hugh Hefner biopic that producer Jerry Weintraub is developing at Warner Bros.
Morgan, an Academy Award nominee for his screenplays for The Queen and Frost/Nixon, met with Hefner on Tuesday.
And afterward, the Playboy founder tweeted, ”I had a good meeting today with screenwriter Peter Morgan discussing a film about my life.”
The Hefner project, which originally was developed by Imagine Entertainment, moved over to Warners earlier this year.
Morgan, who most recently wrote Fernando Meirelles’ 360 and Ron Howard’s upcoming Rush, is repped by UTA and Independent Talent Group.
