A new entry has popped up on the IMDB page of
“A young Montgomery Clift finds himself in love with a young Elizabeth Taylor following the filming of A Place In The Sun.
There’s scant information about the production, but Matt has mentioned in the past that his dream role would be to play the four-time Oscar nominee, who battled a multitude of demons during his life, including addiction, a life-changing car accident, and guilt and shame about his sexuality (he died in 1966 at age 45 of coronary artery disease).
It’s certainly a juicy role for any actor, but if this is true (and not some stupid prank), then this could be a career-defining moment for Matt, who has never been given the chance to fully stretch his acting talent.
Now the only question is … who will play Liz? Not to mention the “warm and vital appeal” of Shelley Winters.
UPDATE! Deadline has just confirmed. Congratulations Matt!
