"'Leo and Hugh have been friends for a long time and Leo has always been
interested in Hugh's life story. Leo thinks it would make a great movie and Hugh
would love Leo to do it - on condition Hugh is alive to see it.'"
Hefner is a natural person to make a movie about, because of the changes that he made in our culture. Like him or hate him he changed the way we think about sex more than anyone since Kinsey. Leo of course is a natural selection to play Hugh, I don't think any other of the big names in Hollywood could pull of the role as good.
