Boy George is the latest musician getting the biopic treatment.
Per Deadline, the film, appropriately titled Karma Chameleon, is hoping to begin production this summer in London and Bulgaria. Casting for the role of George and other main characters is currently in progress.
Deadline notes, “The film will explore George’s humble beginnings in an Irish working-class family, through his rise to the top of the international charts with the ’80s band Culture Club alongside original band members Jon Moss, Roy Hay, and Mikey Craig.”
The film will be distributed by Millennium Media. In a statement, Millennium Media Co-President Jonathan Yunger said, “We’re elated to bring this amazing story to life. Boy George and Culture Club have been an inspiration to so many people. Specifically, George’s unapologetic way of being true to himself. He has paved the way for people to live their truth as fearless individuals. This is more relevant today than ever and we are so proud to have Sacha lead the charge on this musical journey.”
