Steven Spielberg is teaming up with Billy Elliott writer Lee Hall to take a World War I novel to the big screen.

The Hollywood icon has bought the rights to Michael Morpurgo’s 1982 book Warhorse, which follows the relationship between a boy and his horse in the backdrop of the Great War.

Spielberg has recruited Hall to adapt the book for Hollywood, and he will produce the project. It is unknown if he will also direct.

The filmmaker, who tackled World War II in Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers, tells Daily Variety, “From the moment I read the book, I knew this was a film I wanted to make. Its heart and its message provide a story that can be felt in every country.”
