Leto will play famous artist Andy Warhol in a biopic being penned by The Wolf of Wall Street scribe Terence Winter and being produced by Captain Phillips and Moneyball producer Michael De Luca.

The movie will be based on the biography ‘Warhol: The Biography'(1989) by Victor Bockris and will seemingly focus on themes surrounding his open homosexuality at a time of massive prejudice and his hypochondria.

There is currently no director in place to bring the movie to the screen.
