HBO Films and Bryan Singer are teaming up for a biopic on legendary choreographer and film director Bob Fosse, based on the biography Bye, Bye Life: The Loves and Deaths of Bob Fosse, written by Sam Wasson.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bryan Singer will direct the adaptation, which is to be a feature-length film designed for the premium cable network.
The project, now untitled and in early development, will be a co-production with Sony Television. No writer is on board.
An actor, dancer, choreographer and stage and screen director, Bob Fosse presented a version of his life in his autobiographical 1979 feature All That Jazz. That Oscar-winning film starred Roy Scheider as a hard-living choreographer/director determined to push the envelope.
No production date has been set.
