Jared Leto announced on Friday that he will portray Pop art icon Andy Warhol in a future movie project.
“So grateful and excited about the opportunity,” wrote in an Instagram post announcing the news. He proceeded to wish Warhol a “happy belated birthday” before adding, “We miss you and your genius.”
Leto didn’t provide any additional details on the project.
Warhol was a polarizing figure in the art world during the latter half of the 20th century. The creator of “Campbell’s Soup Cans” and “Marilyn Diptych” was also a prodigious filmmaker.
