Rupert Sanders Boards Napoleon

November 12, 2013


Snow White and the Huntsman helmer Rupert Sanders has found his next project. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Sanders will helm Warner Bros.' upcoming Napoleon, a biopic of the 18th and 19 century military figure, Napoleon Bonaparte.

"The Killing" scribe Jeremy Doner is providing the screenplay for the project, which is likened in tone to Brian De Palma's Scarface.

Rupert's name has also recently been connected with the sci-fi tale The Juliet and two Universal Pictures projects, 90 Church and the untitled Van Helsing reboot.

Gianni Nunari is attached to produce Napoleon. He has previously brought historical battles to the big screen with projects like 300 and Alexander.
