On the heels of Martin Luther King Day, Dreamworks Studios has tapped Ronald Harwood to write a screenplay based on the life of the famous civil rights leader.

According to Variety, this is the first motion picture to be authorized by the King Estate, which will grant the studio and Harwood full access to King's intellectual property from when he was alive.

"I will not say anything about my approach to this screenplay except to say what I always say: 'I will do my utmost to be true to truth,'" Harwood said.
