Producers Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen have cast Ansel Elgort as the young Tchaik-winning pianist in a forthcoming biopic, based on the Howard Reich biography, Van Cliburn.

Elgort is the hot young star of the youth cancer drama, The Fault in our Stars.

    Poor Van Cliburn! The good thing about being obscure is that you’ll never have a biopic made about your life.

  • Hank Drake says:

    I’m more concerned about Ansel Elgort’s ability to mime playing piano and clinch Cliburn’s accent than how close a resemblance he bears.
