'65 Lincolns wanted . . . in Shreveport, for indie film on Warhol and Sedgwick. Yeah; right: lol! Nah; it's true.

Andy Warhol enjoys another guffaw from his grave as that monster of the urbane sees a movie on his intersection with mythical young thing Edie Sedgwick go into pre-production in, ahem, Shreveport.

From the Oct 24 Times:

"Film looking for vintage vehicles, other items

Got a 1955-1965 car? It could be in the movies.

"Factory Girl," an independent film about Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick in the 1960s New York factory scene, is in search (of) period cars, trucks, buses, clothes and furniture.

The movie stars Sienna Miller, Guy Pearce, Hayden Christensen, Jimmy Fallon and the band Green Day. It is directed by George Hickenlooper."

The story, evidently legit, says to contact Rob Ortiz at LIFT Productions (318) 631-8330 for more info.

I was reading yesterday that Gavin Rossdale (formerly of the band Bush, aka Mr. Gwen Stefani) will be playing photographer Gerard Malanga. I also read that Gwen herself will be playing Richie Berlin. This may be wrong, but I did read it. This one could really turn into a media circus.

I think Guy Pearce will make a great Warhol.
