Director Oliver Stone is teaming with HBO to bring forward a film based on Robert Caro's classic nonfiction book, The Power Broker.

The project will tell the story of how Robert Moses reshaped the face of New York. Moses, who at one time was dubbed the city's "master builder,' was among the most powerful men in 20th century urban planning and politics, having influenced New York's infrastructure as much as any other individual.

The director will also be producing with Peter Guber and James Gandolfini. Nicholas Meyer (The Prince of Egypt) will be writing the script for the network.

The film is still in development and no other details have been released.
