The actor will start in the biopic film and will also produce it with Michael De Luca, alongside Terence Winter set to write the screenplay. The team goal it’s to tackle the life of Warhol, the famous pop art artist whose mix of art and commerce made him a household name.

Titled ‘Warhol’, Winter will utilize the Victor Bockris 1989 book, called Warhol: The Biography, as a jumping-off point. (Leto and De Luca acquired the rights to the book, having the desired to work on a project together for some time now, according to sources.)
And why on earth we should care about Warhol’s biography?? Well, this guy transformed the art world in the 1960s with works that elevated American consumerism to artistic heights, showing that even Campbell’s soup cans, Coca-Cola bottles and celebrities can be spun into art- and most importantly GAIN a profit from it.

Warhol was before his time, he accepted his sexuality by being openly gay. He also suffered from hypochondriasis who, according to friends and acquaintances, hesitant between a cold and superficial individual — sometimes quiet, sometimes the center of attention — to a brilliant eccentric with a unique style.

Leto, producing via his Paradox production shingle, and De Luca, producing with his Michael De Luca Productions banner, are not aiming for a low-budget indie with Warhol but rather a strong mainstream project with prestige credentials.

This performance may be perceived as a very challenging one, but for Leto, it fits perfectly. Don’t forget he won an Oscar for playing a gay man dying of AIDS in 2013’s Dallas Buyers Club and ignited thousands of fans for his performance as The Joker in this summer’s Suicide Squad.
