Rupert Sanders looks set to direct an epic biopic about Napoleon Bonaparte.

The filmmaker has signed up to make the movie about the French military leader for Warner Bros, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film will apparently take "a Scarface-like look at its subject".

Casting details have not been announced but Variety reported that the studio will look to big names such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy to star in the historical drama.

Rupert made his feature film directorial debut with last year's Snow White And The Huntsman.

He hit the headlines when it emerged he had an affair with the film's star, Twilight actress Kristen Stewart.
