Warners Plans A Horatio Nelson Biopic

Warner Bros. Pictures is setting up “Love and Glory,” a biopic of legendary British Naval commander Lord Horatio Nelson.

Set in the late 18th century, the story will likely follow Nelson’s service in the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars.

His use of strategy and unconventional tactics led to a number of decisive naval victories, coming to a close with the famous victory at the Battle of Trafalgar during which Nelson was fatally wounded.

Peter Woodward is on board to pen the script using source material from John Sugden’s biographies “A Dream of Glory” and “The Sword of Albion.” Gianni Nunnari is producing.
