Sony Plans P.T. Barnum Biopic

Sony Pictures has acquired an untitled P.T. Barnum biopic pitch from Stan Chervin (“Moneyball,” “J Mac”) says Variety.

The story will cover the early years of Barnum, who rose from a shopkeeper to the charismatic showman who built the circus he called “The Greatest Show on Earth.”

Todd Garner (“The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”) will produce.
