Lionsgate has acquired screen rights to “Loving Frank,” a historical novel about architect Frank Lloyd Wright by Nancy Horan, says Variety.

John Burnham Schwartz (Reservation Road) has been set to write the script.

Escape Artists partners Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch will produce with Stuart Parr and Allison Sarofilm.

“Frank” tells the pre-WWI story of the affair between Wright and Chicago society matron Mamah Borthwick Cheney.
