Kristen Stewart, Helena Bonham Carter in talks for ‘JT Leroy’

Los Angeles, Feb 10 (IANS) Actors Kristen Stewart and Helena Bonham Carter are in talks to join James Franco in the biopic “JT Leroy”, a Hollywood-set transgender story.

Justin Kelly, who directed Franco in 2015 film “I Am Michael”, will helm the film from a script he wrote, reports hollywoodreporter.com.

The true story goes behind the scenes of the hoax of JT LeRoy, a woman who pretended to be a man who identifies as transgender, tricking the rich and famous in Hollywood, the fashion world and elite literary circles.

The biopic will be based on memoir and life rights of Savannah Kroop, the woman behind the scheme.

LBI Entertainment, Aquarius and Rabbit Bandini Productions are producing the film, which will start production this year.
