After 39 years, Ian Schrager is finally ready to tell the real story of Studio 54.
He’s signed a contract with award-winning documentary producer John Battsek, who made the Oscar winner “Searching for Sugar Man.”
Matt Tyrnauer, who was behind the doc “Valentino: The Last Emperor,” will direct.
Schrager told Page Six: “Only two people in the world really know the true story — Steve Rubell and me. Sadly, Steve is not here to tell it. As Berry Gordy once said, ‘If the hunter does not tell his story, the lion will.’ I’m sick of all of the false stories by lions, and I’m thrilled to finally unseal the true story from the vault.”
Schrager also will soon open the Public Hotel on Chrystie Street, two more in Brooklyn and Midtown, and up to five Edition hotels around the world.
