Buster biopic

A new biopic on the life of Buster Keaton is in the works. James Mangold is set to direct and produce the film is based on the book 'Buster Keaton: Cut to the Chase' by Marion Meade. Hopefully this version will stick closer to the truth than the last Buster Keaton biopic starring Donald O'Connor.

Groucho biopic

Geoffrey Rush, who previously portrayed comic Peter Sellers, is set to play Groucho Marx in Raised Eyebrows, based on Steve Stoliar’s memoir.  Charlie Plummer has been cast as Stoliar and Sienna Miller will also appear as Erin Fleming, Groucho’s manager and much younger companion during his final years.

Gotta Dance!

John Logan, who penned the biopics RKO 281 and The Aviator, is turning his mind to a film revolving around dancer Gene Kelly. Working from an idea by star Chris Evans, the plot has a 12-year-old boy who works on the MGM Lot befriending Kelly during the making of his latest film. No studio is yet attached.
