A film company has purchased the rights to a biography of former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and is expected to make Giuliani's story into a television movie.
The company, Five Mile River Films, bought the screen rights to "Rudy Giuliani: Emperor of the City," by Andrew Kirtzman, a political correspondent for local TV station New York 1. The purchase price wasn't disclosed.
Kirtzman was with Giuliani on the morning of Sept. 11 as the then-mayor searched for a location for an emergency command center. He updated the book, published in 2000, with a final chapter about the terrorist attacks.
