Seems the naughty habits of the cinematic world’s most famous Tasmanian did not play too well overseas.
Richard Glatzer (“Grief”) and Wash Westmoreland (“Quinceanera”) have made a deal with HBO Films to write and direct “Sensational” – a drama about the scandalous affair Errol Flynn had with a 15-year-old girl reports Variety.
The story follows Flynn’s dalliance with Beverly Aadland, a girl who was being pushed into a movie career by her mother, a wannabe actress whose aspirations were cut short after an accident.
After Flynn collapsed and died at a party, the affair became a tabloid staple, and the girl’s mother found herself on trial for child abuse.
The pair will also direct, write and produce a series inspired by the film “Quinceanera” which deals with coming of age and culture clash themes around L.A.’s Echo Park.
