Universal has picked up the nonfiction story First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong and will translate it into a film about the first person to set foot on the moon.

Variety reported that NASA historian James R. Hansen got rare direct access to Armstrong, a test pilot-turned-astronaut who was so driven to reach the moon and play the role of American hero that he became known as "the Ice Commander."

No production date has been set.
