Elie International and Martone Productions have bought the rights to a film based on the award-winning reporter-photographer Bernard Diederich.

Variety notes Diederich covered Latin America and the Caribbean during the 1950s, '60s, '70s and '80s as a Time magazine photojournalist and news correspondent. He also wrote books on the lives of dictators Anastasio Somoza of Nicaragua, Rafael Trujillo of the Dominican Republic and Papa Doc Duvalier of Haiti.

Maria Martone will write the screenplay; no details for production has been announced.
