Oscar Nominee Peter Morgan to Pen Hugh Hefner Biopic

STANSTED, ENGLAND - JUNE 02:  Playboy founder Hugh Hefner arrives at Stansted Airport on June 2, 2011 in Stansted, England. Mr Hefner is back in the UK to mark the launch of the new Playboy Club in Mayfair, which opens on June 4. The club's opening will welcome back the iconic Playboy Bunny to London after a 30 year absence. Famous Bunnies have included Debbie Harry and Lauren Hutton.  (Photo by Dan Kitwood/Getty Images)

Peter Morgan, screenwriter behind politically charged, U.K.-oriented films like Frost/Nixon, The Last King of Scotland, and The Queen (he received Oscar nominations for the latter two), will now pen the Hugh Hefner biopic, naturally. If James Franco's cameo as Hef in Lovelace goes well, maybe he can reprise the role here?
