Androgynous male model Andrej Pejic has been offered the lead role in a new movie adaptation of Seraphita by French director Florence Dewavrin.
Reports from Frockwriter reveal that Pejic has already met up with Dewavrin to discuss the role.
Seraphita is based on the 1834 book of the same name by Honore de Balzac. It tells the story of a being called Seraphita who is perfectly androgynous. A man and a woman both fall in love with Seraphita, but because Seraphita is beyond gender, he/she is the perfect vision of whatever his/her lovers want.
Pejic is similar to Seraphita in many ways. He can sell couture to women and macho outerwear to guys because he appeals tremendously to both sexes.
Arnaud Vanbleus, Pejic’s agent, says that there is no one like him and although everyone wants him, they don’t always have the budget or the right kind of project.
Let’s hope Pejic goes ahead with this movie. It would be pretty amazing, wouldn’t it?
