Warner Bros. bought Graham Moore’s spec script The Imitation Game in a 7-figure deal today. The buzz is reportedly great on Moore’s debut script about the life of British mathematician/computer scientist Alan Turing, though that is not necessarily why the studio outbid several independent companies for the rights. Rather it is because Leonardo DiCaprio is very interested in the project and has “the inside track” to star. Moreover, Ron Howard—who won the Oscar when he directed the math biopic A Beautiful Mind—is reportedly interested in the directing. No talent is officially attached yet.
