Following on the smashing success of Bohemian Rhapsody and now Rocketman, Boy George is set to be the next to shine in the biopic spotlight.
MGM Studios has announced that a new film about the life of Boy George and the Culture Club heydays will be directed by Sacha Gervasi and produced by Kevin King Templeton and Paul Kemsley.
“There is no filmmaker better suited than Sacha Gervasi to tell George’s confessional story with the irreverence and emotion it deserves,” MGM President Jonathan Glickman said of the film.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with both of them to bring this remarkably honest and wildly entertaining tale to audiences around the world.”
It will not be the first time Boy George’s life is on screen, the BBC made the TV movie Worried About the Boy in 2010 which focussed on Boy George’s late teenage years, the rise of the new wave scene and Culture Club’s early success.
