Bron and 21 Laps have set Jeremy Strong to star in their adaptation of polio vaccine drama Splendid Solution.
The feature is based on Jeffrey Kluger’s novel of the same name about Jonas Salk’s quest to discover a vaccine as polio ravaged the United States in the early 1950s.
Gillian Weeks will write the screenplay. The producers did not announce a director on Tuesday (March 30).
Shawn Levy (Free Guy) and Dan Levine (Arrival) will produce on behalf of 21 Laps Entertainment, with Becca Edelman and Emily Feher managing the project.
