Ronald Reagan biopic in the works…

A biopic of Ronald Reagan, the 40th President of the United States, is in development.

Titled Reagan will be based on two best-selling biographies by Paul Kengor: “The Crusader” and “God and Ronald Reagan.”

Mark Joseph, who optioned the books, is co-producing with Ralph Winter (“X-Men” films, Planet of the Apes) and Jonas McCord (Ray, Holes, The Passion of The Christ) wrote the script.

Reagan begins with the 1981 assassination attempt and tells Reagan’s story through flashbacks and flash-forwards.

The film is expected in cinemas late next year.
