Citizen DeLorean

A trio of John DeLorean flicks? According to Wired, there are three such films in the works.

To quote John Z from the infamous drug deal tapes (while looking at a pile of cocaine): "It's gold!"

DeLorean’s Life Would Make a Great Movie. Three, Actually

There are few people in the history of the auto industry quite like John Z. DeLorean. He lived large and dreamed big, and his life story reads like the script of a Hollywood movie. Perhaps that’s why there are not one, but three, films about him in the works.
DeLorean was a man of action who launched the muscle car revolution, made a bundle, married a model and beat a cocaine rap after starting his own auto company — which, by the way, built an iconic car. If that isn’t the plot to a good flick, what is?

“It is almost like an updated Citizen Kane story of the great American entrepreneurial hero and how it all went wrong,” Nick Spicer of XYZ Films, one of the studios working on a biopic, told Variety.

So step right up and see the story of the man who led the last assault on Detroit (well, before the Japanese came along) and relive his Promethean fall in a multiplex near you.
