    A play about a Jewish Aids activist is to be made into a film by the creator of television show Glee.

    American Jewish playwright Larry Kramer is to adapt his semi-autobiographical 1985 drama The Normal Heart for the screen.

    Mr Kramer drew on his experiences as one of the founders of the Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC) in the early 1980s to create the part of advocate Ned Weeks.

    The GMHC were crucial in challenging the idea that Aids was only a “gay cancer”.

    The film will be produced by Glee’s Ryan Murphy and will star Mark Ruffalo, seen recently in Shutter Island, as the central character.

    The actor said he was looking forward to playing “someone who really does change the world by his commitment.”
