Writer in talks over Hefner movie

18 July 2012

The Queen screenwriter Peter Morgan is in talks to make a film about Playboy founder Hugh Hefner.

Morgan, who penned a TV drama about Gordon Brown and Tony Blair's complex relationship in The Deal, is also the man behind Frost/Nixon.

He wrote the original play about David Frost's interviews with the disgraced US president and the eventual film version which starred Michael Sheen as the English journalist and presenter.

Hefner launched his adult magazine, famous for its centre-fold models, in 1953.

The 86-year-old, who is famous for his colourful private life, tweeted: "I had a good meeting today with screen writer Peter Morgan discussing a film about my life."

Morgan's film The Queen won its star Dame Helen Mirren a best actress Oscar for her portrayal of the monarch in 2006 while the movie was nominated for best film.
