Philip Kaufman to
direct biopic on Nicholas Ray

Ray was the bisexual director of Rebel Without a Cause.

Variety reports that director Philip Kaufman (The Right Stuff, Henry and June) will take on the life of his filmmaking predecessor Nicholas Ray in the film biography I Was Interrupted, written by Oren Moverman (Jesus' Son). The bisexual Ray had several legendary love affairs with Hollywood figures of both sexes, including Natalie Wood and Wood's biographer Gavin Lambert, and struggled with drugs and alcohol; principally remembered for Rebel Without a Cause, Ray also directed such classics as Johnny Guitar, In a Lonely Place, and Bigger Than Life. The script is based on Ray's memoir of the same name and will focus on the last decade of his life; no start date has been set. (
