Gus Van Sant Making Another Harvey Milk Biopic

April 13, 2007 (9:05 am) GMT
Oscar-nominated filmmaker Gus Van Sant reportedly has attached himself to develop a biopic about Harvey Bernard Milk, whose life story will also be depicted in "The Mayor of Castro Street."

Seems that filmmakers of "The Mayor of Castro Street" are going to face a potential rival in its attempt to bring up the life of Harvey Bernard Milk, the first openly gay city supervisor of San Francisco, California.

Variety has revealed that Oscar-nominated director Gus Van Sant is on the move to make an untitled feature about Milk with Dustin Lance Black, writer of several episodes of the HBO's drama series "Big Love", set to pen the screenplay. It is said that the scribe's agents at Endeavor will shop around the script early next week.

Van Sant was once tapped to helm "Castro Street" and even wrote a draft for the project years ago at Warner Independent Productions, which finally settles on Bryan Singer to direct instead and reportedly is near deal with Chris McQuarrie to write the final draft. The Louisville-born filmmaker has finished working on his latest film "", which is slated to come up December 26 this year.
