David Dobkin To Direct Peter Morgan’s Hugh Hefner Biopic

The founder of Playboy magazine is getting a biopic, according to Variety, who report Warner Bros is in talks with one of their favorite directors, David Dobkin, to direct an untitled film chronicling the rise of Hugh Hefner.

Peter Morgan wrote the script which follows Hefner as he publishes Playboy in the 1950s and cultivates it into a bona-fide media empire, while simultaneously building a reputation as a swinging bachelor, a label he still wears proudly even now in his 80s. Robert Downey, Jr. and Hugh Jackman had previously been courted for the Hefner role, and Warner Bros is expected to look for an actor with “similar charm and wit” to cast.

It’s Warner Bros, so I’m betting Ben Affleck gets a call soon, followed by Ryan Gosling and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
