Leonardo DiCaprio is eyeing the lead role in the adaptation of Graham Moore's spec script The Imitation Game about British mathematician Alan Turing, which has just been snapped up by Warner Bros.

Ron Howard is interested in directing the project, which is informed by Andrew Hodges' definitive biography "Alan Turing: The Enigma."

The film centers on the life of Alan Turing, an English mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, computer scientist, criminally prosecuted homosexual, and tortured soul who committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple has it all. (It is said that Steve Jobs named his company "Apple" as a tribute to Alan Turing.)

No production date has been set.
