    Matt Bomer Set To Play Montgomery Clift In Indie Feature

    BREAKING: Matt Bomer, the star of White Collar and Magic Mike, is set to play Montgomery Clift in a biopic of the Hollywood star. The film is being shopped for financing by Pier 3 Pictures’ Michael Din, Janine Giaime and Juri Henley-Cohn. Larry Moss will direct a script by Christopher Lovick and they are shooting for a 2014 start date.

    To hear about a zillion Deadline Hollywood commenters tell it, Bomer was the logical choice for Christian Grey in Fifty Shades Of Grey. But he’s sparked to play a true Hollywood icon in Clift. At his prime, Clift rivaled Marlon Brando as Hollywood’s biggest male star. A method actor who refused to put his private life on display, he graduated from stage roles to screen success in films that includes A Place In The Sun and From Here To Eternity. His matinee idol good looks were destroyed by a devastating car accident that left him with a broken nose and facial scars. Though he continued to make movies, the accident haunted him until his death, even though he received an Oscar nomination for one of his last performances in Judgment At Nuremberg.

    Bomer, who most recently starred for Ryan Murphy alongside Julia Roberts and Mark Ruffalo in the screen adaptation of Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart for HBO, has been knocking on the door for awhile. I recall him being Brett Ratner’s choice to play the Man Of Steel when Warner Bros tried to put together its Superman movie several years ago. Good to see him getting his due.

    Sounds like an Oscar bait role

    I am interested in seeing how this movie does in portraying Montgomery Clift.

    I am curious as to who they will get to play Elizabeth Taylor.  Also, will there be any mention of Marlon Brando and James Dean.
