Logan Marshall Green’s star is set to rise exponentially following the release of Prometheus next month, and in anticipation he’s already booking in new roles, with Deadline reporting that he’s set to play Tennessee Williams in Lonely Hunter.
The film isn’t all about Williams though (which is a shame, as he’s a fascinating figure, but a rather troubled and difficult one, which is probably why he hasn’t has a high profile biopic), instead concentrating on gothic novelist Carson McCullers (Jena Malone), whose circle included the likes of Williams, Truman Capote and Gypsy Rose Lee.
However it was gay playwright Williams who was her best friend and confidante. It’s not known how deeply the film will go into Williams story, who had a long, very difficult relationship to his sexuality, which was charted in his plays and ranged from acceptance to outright rejection.
Lonely Hunter hopes to shoot later this year.
