Bukowski is an upcoming American biographical film. It retells the early years of writer Charles Bukowski. The film is to be directed by James Franco and stars Josh Peck as Charles Bukowski, Tim Blake Nelson as his father, Henry, and Alex Kingston as his mother, Katharina.


The film focuses on Charles Bukowski's early years: his abusive father, disfiguring acne, alcoholism, and his escape through writing.[1]



Shooting began on January 22, 2013, in Los Angeles.[1] After shooting for two weeks, the crew took a break, with a planned resumption in March 2013.[6] In April 2014, Cyril Humphris announced that he had filed a lawsuit against Franco that alleges that Franco had adapted Ham on Rye without the necessary film rights.[7][8] The suit was later dropped.[9]


Bukowski was planned for release in 2014.[10] However, no news has emerged since.
