Cody writing Hefner biographical film?
It seems a strange choice, but according to the man himself Hugh Hefner, Diablo Cody is in talks to write the script for the biographical film about the head of Playboy.
Seems she met with the man himself and was discussing the idea of writing the film, which does bring up the point, what happened to the last one?
”Meeting with Diablo Cody to talk about the Brian Grazer Playboy film today”
Apparently Diablo Cody never said anything after this regarding it, nor did Hefner.
It all seems a little surprising since we were hearing casting rumours and Brett Ratner was lined up to direct, Brian Grazer looked like he was steaming ahead with it. Not so now, and we don't even know if Ratner is still connected, or if he's been dropped along with the script.
What this does show is that Hefner has a lot of involvement, and quite rightly so. Personally writing the story from a woman's perspective might give us something a little more interesting, after all a guy writing it is going to get distracted by the pictures!
