Jared Leto to Star as Karl Lagerfeld in New Biopic

Jared Leto is set to star as Karl Lagerfeld in a new biopic about the late fashion designer, WWD and Variety report. Leto’s production company with Emma Ludbrook, Paradox, is making the film, though no director is yet attached. “Karl had a career that spanned 50-plus years so both personally and professionally he was close to a number of people,” Leto told WWD. “I can say we are going to home in on key relationships that convey different parts of his life.”

Lagerfeld’s fashion house has endorsed the film, and three executive producers who were close to Lagerfeld are on board. Leto added that “Karl has always been an inspiration to me,” describing the controversial designer as a “true polymath, an artist, an innovator, a leader and, most importantly, a kind man.”
