A Brand-New Andy Warhol Biopic Is Happening

Erin Fitzpatrick

Andy Warhol may have one of the most recognizable names in the art world. Now he's about to be immortalized on the big screen in a major way. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jared Leto is set to play the artist in a new biopic, which Leto will also produce. No word yet on a release date, but you can bet we'll be waiting with bated breath. Thanks to THR, we know the movie boasts some high-caliber talent: Terence Winter, who wrote Leonardo DiCaprio's The Wolf of Wall Street, will write the screenplay. 

Of course, Warhol's impact extended way beyond the art world—he was a major player in the fashion scene of the '60s as well. He photographed everyone from Yves Saint Laurent to Diane von Furstenberg, and counted '60s style icon Edie Sedgwick as his muse. Plus, he was a regular at the infamous Studio 54, which was always packed with fashion heavyweights like Halston and Bianca Jagger.
