American actor Jared Leto has been back on the spotlight ever since his role as The Joker in the recently released film Suicide Squad. This time is to recreate Andy Warhol, one of the most influential figures in art.
The biopic, named ‘Warhol’ will be produced by Michael Luca and written by Terrence Winter. The film will be based in the 1989 book ‘Warhol’ by Victor Bockris.
Although it might be a long time before the film is released, it is definitely something to look forward to as Warhol was not only a talented individual who had a great impact on art and consumerism but also had an interesting lifestyle; The artist was openly gay, the manager of 60′s Rock band The Velvet Underground and owned an art studio called The Factory, which has already been talked about in a 2006 film ‘Factory Girl’, which focuses on the toxic relationship between wealthy debutant Edie Sedgwick and Warhol Himself.
You can watch the trailer for Factory Girl below, it is definitely worth a watch if you are into art.
