New Aristotle Onassis Film in the Works
The rumor mill has it that a new movie about Aristotle Onassis will start shooting late this year or early. It will have the great Al Pacino playing the Onassis. This brings up the question of who will play the young Onassis. Unfortunately, no details are available at this point in time but it is something to look forward to.
Faye Dunaway says that Al Pacino will play Aristotle “Ari” Onassis to her Maria Callas in the film version of Terrence McNally’s Tony-winning Master Class.
Dunaway, who owns the screen rights to the property, did the play on tour last year and had hoped to do it on Broadway, but the drama closed in the middle of her tour after a substantial run.
It seems that the world just can’t get enough of the old school hustlers like Onassis. By comparison most of today’s technology-based billionaires are rather boring figures. The typical story with the latter is that they coded something, put it online where it went viral, and ended up on the Forbes list. Ho-hum.
