Gaspard Ulliel to play Yves Saint Laurent in a new biopic
Quote:
OUT OF THE BLUE: French actor and model Gaspard Ulliel, the face of Chanel’s male fragrance Blue, will play the role of Yves Saint Laurent in a new biopic to be directed by Bertrand Bonello, according to Eric Altmayer, the producer of the film. Shooting on “Saint Laurent” is due to start next spring, he added. The film is cowritten by Bonello — whose last feature, “House of Tolerance,” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year — and Thomas Bidegain, known for his work with director Jacques Audiard on “Rust and Bone” and “A Prophet.”

Ulliel is best remembered for his role as a young Hannibal Lecter in “Hannibal Rising,” and was recently seen in the historical drama “The Princess of Montpensier.” He has also appeared in a campaign for Longchamp alongside Kate Moss.

FRENCH actor Gaspard Ulliel has been cast as Yves Saint Laurent in an upcoming biopic of the iconic designer. Currently the face of Chanel’s fragrance Bleu de Chanel, the 27-year old actor and model is best known for playing a young Hannibal Lecter in 2007’s Hannibal Rising, as well as posing alongside Kate Moss for Longchamp’s autumn/winter 2008-2009 campaign.

“A huge audition was organised after Cannes and Gaspard Ulliel won the part,” said Nicolas Brigaud-Robert of Paris-based Films Distribution, according to screendaily.com.

Directed by Bertrand Bonello, the French-language film will focus on Saint Laurent’s success in the Sixties and Seventies. Filming on the €15m (£12m) project is due to start in spring 2013. Another biopic of the designer, directed by Jalil Lespert, is also currently in the works having been given the seal of approval by Pierre Bergé, Saint Laurent’s long-term partner - Vogue UK
Let's see I hope not to get dissapointed. And it has to compete wit the another bio pic.

Oh, Gaspard. He used to be so handsome and charming until he realised he looked handsome and charming. I feel like the role would've worked at the time he started, when he looked shy in that Yves Saint Laurent way.

Looking forward to this film anyway, Yves led such an interesting life. He truly lucked out in the time/generation department.

He is a great choice, I have always been a fan. I agree with MP I wish he was still shy but I will always think he looks good!

Gaspard Ulliel as Yves Saint Laurent
Quote:
French actor Gaspard Ulliel will play Yves Saint Laurent

in a forthcoming biopic of the late designer’s early career.





The film, which is as yet untitled and without a release date,

will focus on the launch of Saint Laurent’s eponymous design

house and its Sixties and Seventies heyday as the most famous

and innovative fashion label in the world.

Pierre Bergé, the late designer’s partner of 50 years, has

reportedly not given the Bertrand Bonello - directed film

his approval.

Jérémie Renier is playing Pierre Bergé ?!? OMG yes . The poster is a bit creepish and the wig a bit weird but I find it very intruiging. Really looking forward to see the film.

The preview image is horrible. He looks comical rather than beautiful.

There's no feeling in this guy.
