Tony Scott Wages War on Hollywood



Director/producer Tony Scott will turn a Vanity Fair article entitled "Pat Dollard's War on Hollywood" into a big screen feature.

Known to often circulate around action/thriller genre, Tony Scott is surprisingly taking a rather unusual step this time. The Hollywood Reported has brought in news saying that the Emmy Award-winning producer is about to make a biographical feature about a Hollywood agent-turned-pro-war documentary filmmaker named Pat Dollard.

Pic will likely be based on an article placed on Vanity Fair titled "Pat Dollard's War on Hollywood" of which rights Scott has obtained as well as Dollard's life rights. While portraying Dollard as the stereotypical Hollywood agent with a drug-fueled lifestyle and a collection of ex-wives, the article described his effort to sell a documentary of his entitled "Young Americans" also that in making a concurrent documentary, an incoherent porn filmed by a rehab sidekick.

No word on cast lineup yet, but it is revealed that Dollard himself is onboard to pen the script alongside the article's author, Evan Wright. Meanwhile it is still unclear whether Scott will also direct besides producing via his Scott Free Productions.
