Amazon Studios has acquired the pitch and is developing the project about Dean, a pivotal figure in the Watergate scandal, reports variety.com.

Producer Bob Cooper is backing the project with his Landscape Entertainment banner along with Billy Ray. Dean will be executive producer of the movie with his manager Rick Berg. Screenwriter Evan Parter is on board to pen the feature.
