DiCaprio to play Atari-creator in biopic

Leonardo DiCaprio is signed up to play Atari-creator Nolan Bushnell in a biopic that the movie star will also produce.

The movie is currently without a director, but it will be written by Brian Hecker and Craig Sherman, according toVariety.

Bushnell has been targeted by various Hollywood studios over the years, but the two writers apparently were the only ones to convince him they could do his life justice.

Whether or not there's enough to say about a man who spends most of his early years behind a computer programming games remains to be seen.
