Eliza Dushku has more going on than just her much-talked about starring role in television guru Joss Whedon's new upcoming television series, Dollhouse.
The Bring It On beauty just told me she's co-producing a movie about the life of Robert Mapplethorpe, the late photographer who caused national headlines with his controversial homoerotic work.
"Literally this week after quite some time, we finalized the deal with the Mapplethorpe estate," Dushku told me Gatorade's G-Gym at Sundance's Village at the Yard.
Dushku's brother, Nate, will star as Mapplethorpe, who died of AIDS in 1989 at age 42.
"Nate physically has an uncanny resemblance to Robert," Dushku said. "Some pictures are really eerie."
