‘Napoleon’ Writer Signs Two-Picture Script Deal at Warner Bros. (EXCLUSIVE)

Scribe has credits on 'The Killing,' 'Damages'

Warner Bros. has signed screenwriter Jeremy Doner to a two-picture blind script deal in the wake of his writing an untitled Napoleon biopic for the studio.

Warner reached a deal last month with “Snow White and the Huntsman” helmer Rupert Sanders to direct the  Napoleon project with Gianni Nunnari producing. Doner heavily researched Napoleon in writing the script, leading to significant parts of the story being at odds with the general public knowledge of the French general.

Doner previously wrote “Odysseus” for the studio. He also wrote for TV shows “The Killing” and “Damages.”

He is repped by CAA.
