The Fighter’s David O.Russell to Direct Russ Meyer Biopic for Fox Searchlight

18 March 2011 3:29 PM, PDT | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Fox Searchlight is in negotiations to buy a pitch package with David O. Russell directing a biopic about Russ Meyer, the maker of B-movies.

The pitch package also involves buying the rights to the book Big Bosoms and Square Jaws: The Biography of Russ Meyer, King of the Sex Film. The book was penned by Jimmy McDonough and first published in 2005.

Here is a part of the book’s synopsis:

In a career that spanned more than forty years, Meyer created a body of work that has influenced a legion of filmmakers, fashionistas, comic book artists, rock bands and even the occasional feminist.”

Meyer died in 2004 and made over twenty films since the 1950s. He wrote, directed, produced, financed and often distributed his own pics—and placed with beautiful big breasts women in central roles, during the height of the sexual revolution. Some of his flicks include Faster, Pussycat! Kill! »
