Steve McQueen Biopic In The Works

Producers Michael Cerenzie and Christine Peters are working on a Steve McQueen biopic reports Variety.

The project will primarily chronicle McQueen’s Hollywood career, which began in 1956 when the Indiana native got his break in the film “Somebody Up There Likes Me”.

The pair will produce, along with Brian Oliver and Chuck Rock, based on the Marshall Terrill-penned biography “Portrait of an American Rebel”.

It also examines his three marriages, including his stormy relationship with Ali McGraw, as well as his battle against lung cancer and offscreen penchant for motorcycles, fast cars and drugs.
