Steve McQueen Biopic on the way - Who could play McQueen?

Variety have the news that producers Michael Cerenzie (Before the Devil Knows You're Dead) and Christine Peters are bringing a Steve McQueen biopic to the bigscreen. They picked up the rights to Marshall Terrill's biography "Steve McQueen: Portrait of an American Rebel."

Word is that the film will cover McQueen's Hollywood career, which began in 1956 with the film "Somebody Up There Likes Me." It will also delve into McQueen's offscreen love for motorcycles, fast cars and drugs. Then of course there are his three marriages, including his stormy relationship with Ali McGraw, as well as his battle against lung cancer.

All in all McQueens amazing life should make for a great film.

There is no director attached but Cerenzie has secured the cooperation of McQueen's widow, Barbara Minty.

The big question is, of course, who could play Steve McQueen? Who has the acting chops to be the Cooler King? Over to you guys.
