0

Ansel Elgort is to portray American pianist Van Cliburn in a new biopic.

Van Cliburn will be based on the Howard Reich novel of the same name and will reunite Elgort with his The Fault in Our Stars producers Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen, according to Deadline.com.

Andrew Stern will write the script for the movie, which will focus on the musician’s early years and the Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition in Moscow, which he won in 1958.

Cliburn passed away of bone cancer last year.
