Zachary Quinto: Gearing Up For George Gershwin
Star Trek star Zachary Quinto is set to play famed composer and pianist George Gershwin in a biopic at DreamWorks Pictures.
The 32-year-old actor will play the pianist, whose brother Ira was responsible for more than a dozen Broadway shows. DreamWorks will reportedly be supplying accent and dialogue coaches for Quinto.
The film is one of three projects that Steven Spielberg is looking to direct, Deadline Hollywood reports. Doug Wright (Quills) penned the script for the movie which could begin filming as soon as April. An official announcement could come later this week.
