White Horse Pictures and Lionsgate are teaming to produce "Emperor," the first film in a proposed trilogy adaptation of Conn Iggulden's series of novels about a young Julius Caesar and his best friend Brutus.
William Broyles Jr., Stephen Harrigan, Burr Steers and Ian Mackenzie Jeffers are penning the script which will be based on the first two books in the series. Nigel Sinclair, Gianni Nunnari, Mark Canton and Matt Jackson will produce the project which is currently seeking a director. Nunnari says in an official statement:
"Combining the sweep of '300' with the intrigue of 'Game of Thrones,' this is the part of the story of the mighty Julius Caesar that nobody knows - his emergence alongside Brutus as young powerhouses in Rome, a fresh and contemporary retelling of their rivalries, passions and jealousies, captured in a movie with breath-taking action, spectacular visual effects and epic scope. »

Caesar became Dictator of the Roman Republic in 49 B.C. after his victories in the Gallic Wars extended Rome’s territory. He was assassinated by Brutus in 44 B.C.
