If you've been reading us for a while, you'll know that one project we've been closely following is Sacha Gervasi's gestating biopic-ish "My Dinner With Hervé." The "Anvil! The Story of Anvil" director has been trying to get the project off the ground for a while now and it's easy to see why -- it's a fascinating tale. The film revolves around the last days of Hervé Villechaize, aka Tattoo—the famous dwarf on TV’s “Fantasy Island.” Written by and based on Gervasi’s true-life experiences, ‘Herve’ is both personal and semi-autobiographical — Gervasi was actually the last journalist to interview Villechaize before he committed suicide in 1993. In fact, after essentially telling Gervasi his life story for a magazine feature profile piece and dredging up a lot of his painful past and upbringing, Villechaize killed himself just a few days later.
