The film, written by Boardwalk Empire creator and Wolf of Wall Street screenwriter Terrence Writer, is based on the 1989 book Warhol: The Biography, that the Oscar-winning Leto (yes, I typed that) bought the rights to.
Leto, a heterosexual male, who won the 2014 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for portraying a trans woman living with HIV in Dallas Buyers Club, will now have another shot at winning one for portraying a gay man.
It's impossible to even fathom the reports of Leto's "methods" in preparation for this role. It's OK to be afraid!
Cut to Jared Leto at a local supermarket late at night, slowly pushing a shopping cart full of tomato soup cans, tucking an wisp of the platinum wig that *only he can see* behind his ear.
