Leonardo DiCaprio has hired Craig Lucas and Michael Horowitz to develop a biopic on Timothy Leary for Leo's Appian Way production company.

The Hollywood Reporter says DiCaprio knew Leary before his death in 1996, and has been looking to develop a film on the LSD advocate for several years. The film will focus on Leary's life between his enrollment at West Point in the early 1940s and his escape from prison in 1970.

There's no production schedule set for the Timothy Leary biopic.
