Hackford Scores A Perfect Tenn

Taylor Hackford (“Devil’s Advocate,” “Ray”) will direct the Tennessee Williams biopic “Tenn” for Infinity Media says Variety.

The film focuses on how playwright Williams’ tumultuous upbringing – complete with a scornful father, depression, conflicts about sexuality and watching his beloved sister institutionalized and lobotomized – fueled the conflict in such plays as “The Glass Menagerie” and “A Streetcar Named Desire.”

Robin Shushan has written the screenplay. Michael Ohoven and Dan Halsted will produce.
