Leto, who is producing the movie with Emma Ludbrook for their Paradox banner, will be working with three of Lagerfeld's most trusted associates - Pier Paolo Righi, chief executive officer of the Karl Lagerfeld house; Caroline Lebar, senior vice president, image and communications at the label, and the designer's longtime personal assistant and bodyguard Sébastien Jondeau.

With celebrity, most people don't get to see under the surface. They see one or two facets of a person as presented through a public lens. Karl was a human being. We all have beauty within us and we all have faults. We have masks and then we have moments when we reveal the mask. I'm always interested in seeing what's behind the mask."
