He’s come a long way since "Caddyshack." Bill Murray will play Franklin Roosevelt in a film adaptation of the British radio play “Hyde Park on the Hudson,” sources tell New York magazine.

The film will be directed by Roger Michell of “Morning Glory” fame. The project is a joint venture of Focus Features and Britain’s Film4. The movie focuses on the quasi-incestuous love affair between Roosevelt and his distant cousin, Margaret Stuckley. It takes place during the June 1939 weekend when the British King and Queen visited Roosevelt at his upstate New York estate, in the first-ever trip by the U.K. monarchy to the United States.

The movie will start shooting in July. It will be produced by Kevin Loader, who also did “In the Loop.”
