Steven Spielberg has signed up to co-produce a Martin Luther King biopic for DreamWorks, according to Variety.

"We are all honoured that the King estate is giving us the opportunity to tell the story of these defining, historic events," said Spielberg.

"It is our hope that the creative power of film and the impact of Dr. King's life can combine to present a story of undeniable power that we can all be proud of."

Suzanne de Passe and Madison Jones will co-produce with the Jurassic Park director.
