If it seems like mere weeks ago we were pondering ideas for who could play Steve McQueen in a just-announced biopic, that’s because, er, it was. But now there’s another one.
Yes, hot on the heels of Michael Cerenzie and Christine Peters’ film announcement comes news that producer David Foster is throwing his hat into the ring.
Foster has two advantages – he used to work for McQueen as his publicist before becoming a producer and working with him, and McQueen’s first wife, Neile McQueen Toffel has given him the rights to her memoir.
The Brave One scribes Roderick and Bruce Taylor will write the new film, titled simply McQueen.
Oh, and they have complete access to the McQueen estate. Let the Bullit-style race to the big screen begin!
Okay, we gave you our choices. Who do you want to see as McQueen – we want your comments!
