HBO is reportedly developing a new television film focusing on the life of Bob Fosse.
The feature-length project will be based on forthcoming biography Bye, Bye Life: The Loves and Deaths of Bob Fosse, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Fosse, who died in 1987 aged 60, worked as an actor, dancer and choreographer and won an Oscar in 1973 for his direction of Liza Minnelli musical Cabaret.
X-Men director Bryan Singer will helm the adaptation and will also executive produce alongside partners Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, who are currently working on a new version of Footlose.
No writer is currently attached to the project, which is as-yet-untitled. Sony Television will co-produce with HBO Films.
