Rock Hudson, the Hollywood screen icon of Hollywood whose death in the 1980s put a mainstream face on the growing AIDS crisis, is getting the big-screen biopic treatment https://t.co/hyDJ3erQOH— Hollywood Reporter (@THR) November 8, 2018
- Universal has optioned the upcoming biography All That Heaven Allows: A Biography of Rock Hudson by Mark Griffin (out December 4th) with plans to turn it into a biopic.
- "Love, Simon" director Greg Berlanti has signed on. A search is currently underway for a star and writing team.
- "When Sherry Marsh brought this book to us, we jumped at the chance to be involved," said producers Berlanti and Schechter in a statement. "Rock Hudson’s life and legacy is a vital piece of both LGBTQ history and Hollywood history and has to be given the big-screen treatment it deserves."
- Rock is best remembered for his sex comedies with Doris Day such as "Pillow Talk" (1959) and "Lover Come Back" (1961). He also starred in the Technicolor melodrama staples "All That Heaven Allows" (1955) and "Magnificent Obsession" (1954).
