Variety reports that writer-director Douglas McGrath (Emma, Company Man) is negotiating to write and direct a film about legendary gay author Truman Capote for Killer Films. The movie would focus on the making of Capote's classic "nonfiction novel" In Cold Blood and would be adapted from George Plimpton's biography Truman Capote: In Which Various Friends, Enemies, Acquaintances, and Detractors Recall His Turbulent Career. "It's safe to say he didn't resemble anyone of either gender," says McGrath about Capote. "It's a funny and moving story. It starts out as a social comedy and ends up something entirely more heartbreaking."
