The Wonderfilm Media Corp. (TSX.V: WNDR) (OTC: WDRFF), a leading entertainment company with offices in Beverly Hills and Vancouver, announced in September that it has acquired Marshall Terrill’s 2010 biography Steve McQueen: The Life and Legend of a Hollywood Icon, which it is adapting into a feature film. Terrill spent ten years conducting research for the book, which has drawn the attention of top directors and a-list actors. Wonderfilm’s Jeff Bowler, Bret Saxon and Dan Grodnik will produce, and Terrill will serve as an executive producer and creative consultant for the film. Mitchell Welch also will exec produce. Among other highlights, the biopic will detail the unlikely intersection between McQueen and Charles Manson. According to the book, a screenplay pitched to McQueen by Manson was rejected, resulting in McQueen’s name being at the top of a written kill list that Manson Family member Susan Atkins admitted to while incarcerated. “When I found out from Marshall’s incredibly researched and thorough book that McQueen was supposed to be at the Sharon Tate house the night of the Manson murders, I was instantly engaged in that story thread,” Wonderfilm producer Jeff Bowler stated in the news release. “I think we’ve found a fascinating way into the story of an incredible legend.”
