Ironman to take on Playboy

Though there are no solid plans in place yet for a Hugh Hefner biopic, director Brett Ratner thought it would be a good idea to get Hef’s approval on someone to play him before anything else.

Hef’s choice? Robert Downey Jr.

After a meeting that included Robert, Hef and Brett, the original Playboy has been at Robert to consider to role, bringing it up wherever the two stumble into each other, like the Iron Man 2 premiere just a few weeks ago.

Brett agrees and explains that he believes that Robert would do it, if the script is strong enough.

And there is the snag as there is so much to tell of the life in Hugh Hefner that it has been difficult for the writers to lock down the story.
