Alec Baldwin is playing John DeLorean in an upcoming biopic documentary called Framing John DeLorean. Today we have our first look at Baldwin in the role thanks to the photo above and the trailer for the movie below.
The movie is said to be a documentary that will be fused with narrative scenes, “this portrait of John Z. DeLorean covers the enigmatic automaker’s rise to stardom and shocking fall from grace.” It will include interviews with colleagues, employees, lawyers, friends, and family who knew him best. These interviews will be “interspersed with dramatized vignettes, including a performance by Alec Baldwin – as they all endeavor in their own ways to uncover the real DeLorean.”
Here’s the synopsis:
Money, power, politics, drugs, scandal, and fast cars. The incredible story of John DeLorean is the stuff of a Hollywood screenwriter’s dreams. But who was the real John DeLorean? To some, he was a renegade visionary who revolutionized the automobile industry. To others, he was the ultimate con man. For the first time, Framing John DeLorean recounts the extraordinary life and legend of the controversial automaker, tracing his meteoric rise through the ranks of General Motors, his obsessive quest to build a sports car that would conquer the world, and his shocking fall from grace on charges of cocaine trafficking. Interweaving a treasure trove of archival footage with dramatic vignettes starring Alec Baldwin, Framing John DeLorean is a gripping look at a man who gambled everything in his pursuit of the American Dream.
The film is being directed by Don Argott and Sheena M. Joyce (The Art of the Steal, Last Days Here, Batman & Bill) and it also stars Morena Baccarin (Deadpool, Gotham), Josh Charles, Dean Winters, Michael Rispoli and Jason Jones.
Framing John DeLorean in be released in select theaters on June 7th.
