Temple Worships Art Fraud In “Fake!”

Julien Temple (“Earth Girls Are Easy,” “The Filth and the Fury”) is set to direct “Fake!”, an upcoming feature based on famed art fraudster Elmyr de Hory for Film and Music Entertainment says Reuters.

Based on the book by the equally notorious hoax writer Clifford Irving, the story follows an emotional triangle between the three main characters – de Hory, Irving and Orson Welles who made his last film about de Hory.

Michael Kalesniko (“Private Parts”) penned the script with shooting to take place in Spain, France and Croatia in the Spring.
