It’s actually kind of weird how much they look alike.
“Suicide Squad” “star” Jared Leto has been cast as Andy Warhol in an upcoming biopic, titled “Warhol”. Leto will produce the film alongside Oscar nominated producer Michael De Luca. Luca has produced Oscar winning films such as American History X, The Social Network, Captain Phillips, and Moneyball. “Wolf Of Wall Street” writer Terence Winter will pen the script.
As for Leto’s casting, I think it’s brilliant. Most people have jumped on the hate bandwagon after “Suicide Squad” (which I thought he was fantastic in). Leto is an amazing actor, and will surely bring something unique to the table with his portrayal of the famous artist. I see another Oscar on the horizon for Leto.
“Warhol” does not have a director attached, or an official release date.
