‘The Collaboration’: Daniel Brühl Joins Cast of Warhol-Basquiat Film


Daniel Brühl (Rush, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier) has joined the cast of The Collaboration, an upcoming film adapted from the play by Anthony McCarten (The Two Popes), as first reported by Deadline.

The Collaboration, which is being adapted by McCarten, will see Paul Bettany and Jeremy Pope reprise their roles from the play as the iconic artists Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat, respectively. Kwame Kwei-Armah, who directed the play, will make his directorial film debut. The play is due to arrive on Broadway later this year following its original run back in February at The Young Vic in London.

The play’s synopsis is as follows:

“New York, 1984. Fifty-six-year-old Andy Warhol’s star is falling. Jean-Michel Basquiat is the new wonder-kid taking the art world by storm. When Basquiat agrees to collaborate with Warhol on a new exhibition, it soon becomes the talk of the city.

As everyone awaits the ‘greatest exhibition in the history of modern art’, the two artists embark on a shared journey, both artistic and deeply personal, that re-draws both their worlds.

Brühl will take on the role of Swiss art dealer and collector Bruno Bischofberger.

The Collaboration will begin filming in Boston this September.

If she's not writing or out and about with her camera, she's probably watching anime, nerding out over Star Wars, reading manga, and definitely forgetting to water her plants. And waiting for the Genshin loading screen to pop up. Contact: lindsey@nerdsandbeyond.com
