In a story from Variety, Warner Bros. is beginning development on an action adventure focused on Leonardo da Vinci. They have set it up with Adrian Askarieh via his Prime Universe production company and Roy Lee (The Departed) and Doug Davison at Vertigo Entertainment.
Not much is known about the project except that the film will incorporate da Vinci utilizing his inventions in facing supernatural enemies. The story is based on Askarieh's original idea.
Da Vinci lived from 1452 to 1519. He is considered to be one of the most talented men who ever walked the earth. The artist is best known as a painter of the Mona Lisa and the Last Supper, however he also "was also a mathematician, architect, sculptor, writer, scientist and inventor including concepts for a helicopter, a tank, solar power, a calculator and the double hull."
