Hugh Hefner Biopic That Will Never Get Made Lands at Warner Bros.

You've been hearing about it for years, and at last, the fabled Hugh Hefner biopic that will never get made has moved from Universal to Warner Bros. The one and only Jerry Weintraub will produce, at least until he won't. "While Universal had filmmakers like Brett Ratner attached at one time or another and actors like Robert Downey Jr. and Hugh Jackman mentioned as possibles to play Hef, the project languished," Mike Fleming writes at ML's sister site Deadline. "Wentraub would not disclose what part of Hefner’s life he will cover, and he denied that Harry Potter scribe Steve Kloves is being talked to as a potential screenwriter." Finally! We're getting somewhere. [Deadline]

    Only if they write the script based on his Twitter feed. The updates from the Mansion on their Jenga games, and what he and the bunnies are watching on Tivo are riveting. (Last night Shera was under the weather.)

    "...filmmakers like Brett Rattner..."

    So, lousy ones?

  • The Winchester says:

    They should make this the next Muppet movie.
