Producers on the project are DiCaprio, his producing partner Jennifer Davisson Killoran and Berg. No director is attached yet as producers plan to seek a writer first.
“Wilson” was published last week by Putnam Adult.
Wilson had been president of Princeton University between 1902 and 1910 before serving two years as the governor of New Jersey. He became president as a Democrat following the dramatic election of 1912, defeating the incumbent President Robert Taft and past President Theodore Roosevelt, who ran as a third-party candidate.
