Today director Brett Ratner said he would be making the film with his friend Jared eager to take on the lead role.
"When he heard I got the rights to Hef‘s story, he told me, ‘I want to play him. I want to understand him.’ And I really believe Jared can do it. He’s one of the great actors of today," he said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Although not a perfect aesthtic match, given the skill Leto has to transform into multiple characters we have no doubt he will do Hef justice.
Now if can just get Margot Robbie on board to play one of the bunnies, we'll have ourselves a great little reunion.
