Universal Picks Up “Leonardo” Adventure

Universal Pictures International has picked up Jonny Kurzman’s “Leonardo” action-adventure spec script reports Variety.

The story focuses on da Vinci’s quest to stop Renaissance Europe from returning to the Dark Ages and explores his other non-painterly qualities including mathematics, architecture, sculpting, writing, science and inventing.

Larry and Charles Gordon will produce. The project isn’t to be confused with the Starz and BBC’s “Da Vinci’s Demons” TV series which will premiere in 2013.
