Deadline reports Sacha Gervasi is set to write and direct the Boy George film, while George will co-executive produce.

The movie will recount Boy George’s early Irish working-class beginnings through to his rise to super stardom selling more than 100 million singles and over 50 million albums since the 1980s.

Boy George made an impression on fans and the world with his uncompromised, authentically himself persona, including androgynous attire and honesty.

‘There is no filmmaker better suited than Sacha Gervasi to tell George’s confessional story with the irreverence and emotion it deserves,’ said Jonathan Glickman, MGM’s Motion Picture Group President, in a statement. ‘We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with both of them to bring this remarkably honest and wildly entertaining tale to audiences around the world.’
