BRYAN SINGER To Direct ‘FOSSE’ Biopic!

By on 21 January, 2011

X-Men helmer Bryan Singer is to bring the life of legendary choreographer and director Bob Fosse onto the big screen in a biopic, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Execs at HBO Films are working on an adaptation of Bye, Bye Life: The Loves and Deaths of Bob Fosse, a forthcoming biography from movie historian Sam Wasson, and the plan is to have Singer direct and exec produce the movie for the premium cable network. Neil Meron and Craig Zadan (‘Hairspray‘, ‘Chicago‘) will also serve as exec producers on the project.

No casting or script writer details have been released yet, as the project is still in the early development stages.

Fosse rose to fame performing on and choreographing for the Broadway stage, and went on to direct movies starring Shirley MacLaine in ‘Sweet Charity and Liza Minnelli in the classic ‘Cabaret‘. But die-hard fans of Fosse will know that he also directed his own autobiographical movie back in 1979. It was titled ‘All That Jazz‘ and starred ‘Jaws‘ actor Roy Scheider as a hard-living choreographer/director who was determined to push the boundaries of dance and performance.

I’ll be keeping my eye on this project!
