Andy Warhol Biopic “The Collaboration” Starring Paul Bettany to Begin Production in September

“The Collaboration” is an upcoming Andy Warhol biopic that is scheduled for filming in Boston, MA from September 12th to October 28th. The movie focuses on the extraordinary creative relationship between artists Jean-Michel Basquiat (Pope) and Andy Warhol (Bettany) in the 1980s, and how contrasting beliefs became the propulsion for their work together.

Basquiat first emerged on the New York art scene as a homeless street artist, and the techniques and ideas he developed on the street and took directly into the world’s best galleries made him a sensation. Warhol had a similar fast ascension in the art world years earlier, but he met and began collaborating with Basquiat at a time his career was in decline and the prices of his work falling.
