Jared Leto is set to play the famous Playboy founder, Hugh Hefner, in an upcoming biopic. The film will be directed by producer and director, Brett Ratner, and it’s already in early development under his production company.
Ratner said, “Jared is an old friend. When he heard I got the rights to Hef’s story, he told me, ‘I want to play him. I want to understand him.’ And I really believe Jared can do it. He’s one of the great actors of today.”
