Warner Bros & Leonardo DiCaprio Team For Bill Watterson Biopic

Calvin-Hobbes-sThe Tracking Board is reporting that Warner Bros has grabbed the Dan Dollar penned biopic A Boy And His Tiger about Calvin And Hobbes creator Bill Watterson.  The film will be produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, Roy Lee and Rock Shaink and will focus on Watterson’s early career, his struggles with sudden popularity and the licensing battles that came along with it. The popularity of the series remains high even though no new strips have been produced in almost twenty years.

This is the second biopic recently announced for DiCaprio to produce following one about Woodrow Wilson announced a few months back.
