"Watchmen" executive producer Stephen Williams is set to direct the biopic "Chevalier de Saint-Georges" about the life of an 18th-century French composer who history has dubbed "Black Mozart," based on an original idea from writer Stefani Robinson. The project will be set up at Searchlight Pictures, an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.

Robinson, an Emmy-nominated writer on "Atlanta," who sold the idea to Searchlight, will write the screenplay for the film. The project is an original screenplay based on her own idea about de Saint-Georges. The film will tell the story of the first known composer of classical music from African descent. Though he was born the illegitimate son of a slave and a French plantation owner, he rose in society and became a renowned violin soloist, as well as a champion fencer.
