Dustin Lance Black has been roped in to adapt A. Scott Berg`s Pulitzer Prize-winning biography Lindbergh for Paramount Television.
Reportedly, the limited series will chronicle the life of Charles Lindbergh, from his rise to his struggles with modern celebrity, and will see Black team up with Leonardo DiCaprio again, after `J. Edgar`.
Paramount TV president Amy Powell said that the `Milk` writer is as talented and prolific as anyone working in television and film today, and we take enormous pride in working with him to adapt Scott`s brilliant portrait of one of the nation`s most fascinating cultural figures.
The boyfriend of English diver Tom Daley said that he is eager to dig in to the story of a man who stumbled in his fame but showed a willingness to learn andattempted to rectify the unseen ramifications of what the world still considers hisgreatest successes.
He also described Lindbergh as the `man who urged the world to `listen until the end`.
