A Laurel and Hardy Biopic Is in The Works

(via The Dissolve/Scotsman)

The famed 1930s/40s comedy duo of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy will be the latest in comedy’s canon to get a biopic. UK director Jon S. Baird (Filth) and writer Jeff Pope (Philomena) are set to helm and write the project, respectively, that will focus on the farewell tour of Laurel and Hardy in the early 1950s.

This might be a wild guess, but how likely do you think it would be for this Laurel and Hardy biopic to finish before the Richard Pryor one that looks like it’s actually moving forward?
