Producers option Giuliani book

A film company has purchased the rights to a biography of former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and is expected to make it into a television movie.

The company, Five Mile River Films, bought the screen rights to "Rudy Giuliani: Emperor of the City," by Andrew Kirtzman, a political correspondent for a New York TV station. The purchase price wasn't disclosed.

Co-producer Russell Kagan said the film is expected to air later this year. Actors mentioned for the role of Giuliani include Robert Duvall, Daniel Travanti and James Woods.

Five Mile River has previously produced television movies about biblical figures, including "Abraham," "Moses," "David" and "Jesus."
