Eliza Dushku, who is back on the small screen in Dollhouse, has acquired the exclusive rights to The Perfect Moment, a film about famed photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, known for his subversive photography. Dushku's Boston Diva Productions has secured the rights with full cooperation from Mapplethorpe's estate. Director Ondi Timoner has signed on to helm the film and will co-produce through her Interloper banner. This will be her feature film debut.
The biopic will trace Mapplethorpe's career as he shot to fame in the 1970s, when he was known for his portraits of rock stars and socialites up until his death from AIDS complications in 1989 at the age of 42. There's no word as to who the ladies are considering to portray the controversial Mapplethorpe.
