A Biopic on Yves Saint Laurent

French director Bertrand Bonello (of "L'Apollonide, souvenirs de la maison close" fame) will direct a biopic on Yves Saint-Laurent, the famous and renowned designer who passed away in June 2008, according to Screen magazine, a film industry weekly publication.

The film will focus on the couturier's most iconoclastic period between 1965 and 1976, when he literally wrote fashion history almost single-handledly. No choice of main protagonist has been made yet, according to Eric et Nicolas Altmayer who are behind the film's funding (as they have been behind Ozon's films) but filming is set to begin in 2013. The photo shows designs by YSL from left to right from 1976, 1971 and 1990.
