Producers start brainstorming a Steve McQueen biopic

Variety is reporting that producers Michael Cerenzie (Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead) and Christine Peters (Chaos) have acquired the film rights to Marshall Terrill’s biography Steve McQueen: Portrait of an American Rebel in hopes of (duh) making a McQueen biopic.

The film will “primarily chronicle McQueen’s Hollywood career,” but also go into “McQueen’s offscreen penchant for motorcycles, fast cars and drugs; his three marriages, including his stormy relationship with Ali McGraw; as well as his battle against lung cancer.”

There’s nobody attached yet, so — as with all stories about rights acquisitions — no real reason to start holding your breath about this getting made or not, but I got this to say: Lock Daniel Craig down STAT.

    Damian Lewis would be pretty damn good too.
