Movie To Be Made About Johnny Carson

Posted: 19 November, 2012

NORFOLK (AP) - The estate of the late Johnny Carson has given the go-ahead for a movie about his life. The project is being written by John McLaughlin, who adapted the biopic "Hitchcock," starring Anthony Hopkins. Carson was the longtime host of television's "The Tonight Show." He was born in Corning, Iowa, grew up in Norfolk, Neb., and attended the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. He died in California in 2005. The movie will be based on the upcoming book, "Carson the Magnificent: An Intimate Portrait," written by Bill Zehme. Zehme was a consultant and appeared in the "American Masters" documentary, "Johnny Carson: King of Late Night," that aired on PBS last May.
