Steve McQueen Biopic Planned
Producers Michael Cerenzie and Christine Peters have purchased the rights to 2008 biography Steve McQueen: Portrait Of An American Rebel by Marshall Terrill and plan to transform the book into a major motion picture, according to Variety.com. The film will focus on McQueen's glittering movie career, beginning with his un-credited role in 1956's Somebody Up There Likes Me.
McQueen went on to become the highest paid movie star in the world with films including The Magnificent Seven in 1960, 1963's The Great Escape, and The Thomas Crown Affair in 1968. He died in 1980 aged 50 following cancer surgery.
