The life of Woodrow Wilson, the nation's 28th president who served from 1913 to 1921, is set to get the Hollywood treatment courtesy of Leonardo DiCaprio.

Warner Brothers is in "early negotiations" to score the rights to "Wilson," the acclaimed new biography by Pulitzer Prize-winning author A. Scott Berg, The Hollywood Reporter says.

DiCaprio would star as Wilson who also served as president of Princeton University and the governor of New Jersey, according to the Reporter.

During his two terms in office, the Democrat led the United States into World War 1, created the Federal Reserve and banned child labor.

DiCaprio's project would be Hollywood's first presidential biopic since "Lincoln," the Steven Spielberg production that starred Daniel Day Lewis, who won an Academy Award for best actor.

DiCaprio has played many larger than life American figures over the years including FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover and billionaire Howard Hughes.

Hollywood has tackled Wilson's life before, A 1944 film, called "Wilson" starring Alexander Knox in the title role, was a box office flop that went on to win five Oscars.
