Dome Karukoski ("Heart of a Lion") is set to direct his first English-language film, an authorized biopic of groundbreaking artist Tom of Finland.

Tom of Finland was famous for his groundbreaking sexually explicit drawings of muscular men. He survived anti-gay police brutality in Finland and World War 2, only to make a big impact in America with his art, and influence the gay community worldwide.

Casting will be announced in early 2014 ahead of filming in Finland, Germany and North America in December 2014.
