Oddball actor and weak Joker, Jared Leto, has confirmed he is set to play famous artist Andy Warhol in an upcoming feature. Leto posted a photo of Warhol, timed to the day after what would’ve been his 92nd birthday, on Instagram.
Warhol was also a film director and producer. He was credited with putting Pop Art into mainstream culture with works based on soup cans.
Other famous work includes the Marilyn Diptych.
Leto said in his post:
“Yes it’s true I will be playing Andy Warhol in an upcoming film. And so grateful and excited about the opportunity. We miss you and your genius”
The project was first floated in 2016 but since then it has gone quiet. Writer Terence Winter and producer Michael De Luca were attached but there is no news as to whether they remain involved.
