According to The Hollywood Reporter, Barbara Turner has been tapped to adapt for the big screen the biography You Don't Know Jack about Dr. Jack Kevorkian. Barbara Kopple is on board to direct the drama, which delves into the life of Kevorkian, a proponent of physician-assisted suicide and one of the most controversial American figures of the 20th century.

The project marks the first time the 77-year-old physician, nicknamed Dr. Death, has fully authorized anyone to tell his story.
