The Rob Ford story’s getting the big screen treatment.
A film, titled ‘Run This Town,’ is already in production in Toronto, and will see ”Homeland” and ”Billions” star Damian Lewis portray the late mayor.

He’ll be fitted with a face prosthetic to better resemble Ford.
Canadian actors Nina Dobrev, Mena Massoud and Scott Speedman will co-star.
The film’s described as the story of ”a young journalist, desperate to prove himself, who catches wind of a scandal involving a flashy, unpredictable politician with no filter. Political aides attempt to keep their boss in check — and the story under wraps — in order to save their jobs.”
Ford died two years ago from cancer at the age of 46.
