Dushku Set For Mapplethorpe Biopic

Eliza Dushku (“Buffy,” “Dollhouse”) is using her clout to bring “The Perfect Moment”, a biopic about iconic photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, to the big screen says Variety.

Dushku has secured the exclusive rights and the full cooperation from Mapplethorpe’s estate and has enlisted two-time Sundance grand jury prize winner Ondi Timoner (“DIG!”) to helm the film.

The story will chronicle Mapplethorpe’s career from his rise to fame in the 1970s for his portraits of socialites and rock stars until his death in 1989 at age 42 from complications arising from AIDS.
