Rupert Sanders had a big success with Snow White And The Huntsman, but his rise was dented when it was revealed the married director was having an affair with Kristen Stewart. However it hasn’t ruined his career completely, as Warner Bros. has hired Sanders to direct an upcoming biopic about Napoleon, according to THR.
The film will apparently be ‘a Scarface-like look’ at Napoleon Bonaparte, the French military and political leader who rose to prominence during the latter stages of the French Revolution, rising to power and getting involved in all manner of wars as he tried to expand the French Empire (and he even made himself Emperor so he could properly rule over it).
The Killing scribe Jeremy Doner is writing the script. There’s no news on when it might shoot.
