Spielberg also will produce with Andrew Lazar via his Mad Chance Productions along with Peter Morgan.

The book, whose complete title is American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History, reveals how Texas native Kyle came to record the highest number of sniper kills for an American. The book has been praised for its frankness in telling a first-person account of a warrior who shoots from far and close distances.

Kyle made news earlier this year when he tragically was killed at a shooting range by a fellow vet in February. Read more via The Hollywood Reporter...
