The late Sean Flynn, son of the Hollywood icon Errol Flynn, is coming to life in the biopic Flynn, a project developed by Ralph Hemecker's Mythic Pictures along with Millennium.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hemecker will direct and co-write the screenplay with Perry Deane Young, who also wrote the book on which Flynn will be based.
The movie will serve as a biopic of Sean Flynn, a photojournalist who disappeared in the Cambodian jungle in 1970 and was never heard from again. Both Flynn, a Time correspondent, and a CBS colleague are believed to have been captured by either the Viet Cong or the Khmer Rouge, both of whom were highly active in the area Flynn was working.
Flynn, the only son of Errol Flynn and Lili Damita, worked as an actor for several years before turning to journalism. He appeared in a sequel to Captain Blood, in which father of course starred.
No production date has been set.
