Clift starred in classic movies including From Here To Eternity, Judgment at Nuremberg, The Search and Terminal Station.

Following a serious car accident in 1956, he struggled with painkiller and alcohol addiction until his death in 1966 at the age of 45.

Bomer appeared in Magic Mike, and will next be seen in Space Station 76, Winter's Tale and The Normal Heart.

He was reported to be Brett Ratner's first choice to play Superman when the director was in line for the project. He voiced the superhero in the animated Superman: Unbound.

Bomer was also a fan favourite choice for 50 Shades of Grey before the casting of Charlie Hunnam.

Larry Moss will direct the Montgomery Clift biopic from a script by Christopher Lovick, and shooting will begin in 2014.
