Production Is Underway On Lawrence Bender’s Upcoming ‘Fonzo’ Biopic

In New Orleans, Louisiana, a film about one of the most notorious underworld figures in American history is being produced.

The movie in production is called ‘Fonzo,’ a biopic based on the life of Alphonse “Al” Capone, the 20th century mafia chieftain who in his heyday, ruled the streets of Chicago during the 1930s. The psuedonym ‘Fonzo’ was one of Capone’s many nicknames.

Actor Tom Hardy will play the film’s lead role as the gun-toting, hard-hitting, and ruggedly charismatic gangster. Many other films have been made about Al Capone, including 1987’s ‘The Untouchables‘ starring Robert De Niro.

However, the screenplay for ‘Fonzo,’ this new Lawrence Bender film production, is not based on the crime lord’s younger years. According a recent article from Celeb Mix, the film focuses more on Capone’s later years when he was stricken with syphilis.

Lawrence Bender will be working with a team of producers to create this much-anticipated biopic. Bron Studios will be working in association with Creative Wealth Media to get the job done.

Producers Aaron L. Gilbert, Russell Ackerman, John Schoenfelder, and executive producer Jason Cloth will be working on behalf of their companies along with Bender and Lawrence Bender Productions to create this soon-to-be success.

The name Lawrence Bender is ubiquitous in the world of film. The 60-year-old movie mogul is responsible for an arsenal of cinematic hits and has worked with almost every A-list actress, actor, film director, and film editor you can think of.

Bender is best known as the man behind the majority of acclaimed writer/director Quentin Tarantino’s stable of classic films, including ‘Reservoir Dogs’ and ‘Pulp Fiction.’

For ‘Fonzo,’ the production team hired director Josh Trank, the son of documentary filmmaker and Academy Award-winner Richard Trank. The younger Trank made history as the youngest director to ever open a film at the top box office spot with ‘Chronicle.’

Josh Trank also wrote the screenplay for ‘Fonzo.’ The story’s focal point is the time around the end of Capone’s last prison sentence, which was a term of 10 years. In this era, Capone was senile and dealt with flashbacks of his terrifying criminal past.

Lawrence Bender in Film Making

Lawrence Bender is most recognized for his production role(s) in many of the award-winning Quentin Tarantino films. Alongside these famous movies are also TV shows and many other films covering a variety of genres, all of which have made a successful impact on the film industry. According to (2018), Bender has occupied a producer role in 21 movies/TV shows and has been the executive producer in 7 more of these works. He was born October 17, 1957, in The Bronx, New York and grew up in New Jersey (, 2018). He was originally an aspiring dancer after graduating college with a civil engineering degree. However, this path was quickly put to a stop after he suffered an injury. Fortunately, the aftermath of this event was when his career in production began to blossom.

Bender currently holds three Oscar nominations under his belt: Best Motion Picture of the Year (2010) for Inglourious Basterds, Best Picture (1998) for Good Will Hunting, and Best Picture (1995) for Pulp Fiction (, 2018). It comes as no surprise that Pulp Fiction appears as one of his nominations, as it is my favourite film he has produced. Personally, I am a huge fan of this film’s elements of dark/vulgar humour and seemingly random events that brilliantly lead to plot twists that I would have never been able to predict ahead of time.

Lawrence Bender has definitely made his mark in the film industry due to his success in producing some of the world’s most iconic works. I know for certain that if his role was absent during the formation of these movies, they would not have become as well-known as they currently are. He serves as an inspiration to many film students aspiring to make it in the industry as producers.
