Harvey Weinstein is the new owner of Halston, and he's already mentioned making a documentary of the American legend's life. That would be great, but how much more fun would a biopic be? Then you could resurrect vintage Halston costumes, have Tamara Mellon - Halston's new creative director - be the costume designer, rope Gwyneth into it somehow, and voila, an Oscar contender is born. Our preliminary cast list... Halston = Kevin Spacey Bianca Jagger = Rosario Dawson Anita Pallenberg = Sienna Miller Naeem Khan (whose very first job was as Halston's assistant) = Sendhil Ramamurthy, the gorgeous actor from Heroes And a side note: Harvey Weinstein produced the '90s ode to the '70s, 54, with Neve Campbell and Ryan Phillipe. He can re-shoot on that movie's excellent set, but this time with a better script.
