Clint Eastwood eyeing J. Edgar Hoover biopic

Clint Eastwood is eyeing a biopic feature of legendary FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, which was written a year ago by Dustin Lance Black "Milk."

Eastwood is collaborating with Imagine Entertainment's Brian Grazer and Ron Howard who will be producing the feature.

John Edgar Hoover was the first Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the United States. Appointed director of the Bureau of Investigation—predecessor to the FBI—in 1924, he was instrumental in founding the FBI in 1935, where he remained director until his death in 1972. Hoover is credited with building the FBI into a large and efficient crime-fighting agency. Late in life, and after his death, Hoover became an increasingly controversial figure with critics accusing him of using the FBI to harass political dissenters and activists, to amass secret files on political leaders.

The feature was initially set up at Universal, but it would most probably ends up at Warner Bros., where Eastwood's Malpaso shingle are based, as a Malpaso-Imagine production.
