boy george and culture club biopic is the next in line for big budget musician films

Looks like Boy George will be the next high profile musician to have his life immortalized in the form of a big budget, motion-picture biopic similar to the Freddie Mercury/Queen Bohemian Rhapsody and Elton John’s current Rocketman.

As reported by Variety, MGM Studios has confirmed Sacha Gervasi to write and direct, who previously delivered the Anvil! The Story of Anvil about a never-give-up heavy metal band.

MGM Motion Picture Group president Jonathan Glickman said: “There is no filmmaker better suited than Sacha Gervas is to tell George’s confessional story with the irreverence and emotion it deserves.”

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with both of them to bring this remarkably honest and wildly entertaining tale to audiences around the world.”
