Mandate Pictures is taking off with a new biopic for its latest project. According to Variety, Madate Pictures and Steve Zallian are teaming up on the biopic, My Dinner With Herve.
The film will center on Fantasy Island's Herve Villechaize, who portrayed the popular Tatoo character on the hit series. The biopic will be written and directed by Sacha Gervasi, who conducted the last interview with Villechaize, who portrayed the cult icon Tatoo on Fantasy Island, days before the actor committed suicide.
"Steve read the script as a short 10 years ago and always believed it would make a compelling feature," Gervasi said. "Herve wasn't just a pop culture icon; he was one of the most charming, cultured and dangerous people I've ever met. His is the story of a unique misfit trying to find his place in the world."
Zallian will produce the film. No production schedule for the film was released.
