There’s a Boy George biopic in the works at MGM

It looks like Boy George is the next musician to be immortalised on the silver screen.

MGM is reportedly developing a biopic about the iconic singer, following his rise to fame from the member of an Irish working-class family to a chart-topping star in the 1980s with his band, Culture Club.

The untitled film is set to be written and directed by Sacha Gervasi.

MGM is currently working on an Aretha Franklin movie, with Jennifer Hudson rumoured to take a starring role.

Speaking to Deadline, Gervasi described the singer as: “a trailblazer and a true original. In the London clubs of the ’80s, George was impossible to miss and everyone knew he would be a star long before the world had ever heard a note of Culture Club’s iconic songs. As you can imagine, George’s life story is wickedly entertaining, yet also poignant and inspiring. I’m both honored and excited to be the one to guide it onto the big screen.”
