Universal Pictures moving ahead with Rock Hudson biopic 'All That Heaven Allows'
Universal Pictures is moving ahead with its Rock Hudson biopic ‘All That Heaven Allows’ and is in talks with Richard LaGravenese to write the screenplay.
Hudson was one of the leading movie stars of the 1950s and ’60s, with films ‘Magnificent Obsession,’ “Pillow Talk,’ ‘All That Heaven Allows,’ ‘Send Me No Flowers,’ and the James Dean western ‘Giant,’ for which he received an Oscar nomination.
The actor remained discreet about his sexual orientation throughout his life and died of complications from AIDS in 1985.
Berlanti is credited with shows like ‘Dawson’s Creek,’ ‘Brothers & Sisters,’ ‘Everwood,’ ‘Political Animals,’ ‘Riverdale,’ and ‘You.’ He directed last year’s ‘Love, Simon,’ the first major Hollywood film to depict a gay teenage romance.
