Warner Bros. Telling the Story of Autistic Savant



Warner Bros. Pictures will develop a biopic about Daniel Tammet, a brilliant autistic savant who holds record of reciting over 20,000 digits of the letter pi by memory.

Brewing a new biopic at its pit, Warner Bros. Pictures is going to make a film feature about the life story of Daniel Tammet, a British high-functioning and brilliant autistic savant gifted with a facility for mathematics problems, sequence memory, and natural language learning.

The giant company has already secured the screen rights to the man's autobiography "Born on a Blue Day" and will set it up together with Denise Di Novi's Di Novi Pictures. Published earlier this year in the States under Free Press, the book describes how Tammet sees colors and numbers, providing a rare glimpse into what it's like to be autistic.

Tammet, a 28-year-old Londoner, speaks at least seven languages and holds the European record of memorizing and recounting the letter pi to 22,514 digits in just over five hours during an appearance at Oxford's Museum of the History of Science. He was featured in U.K. documentary "The Boy with the Incredible Brain", first aired on the British television Channel 5 in May 2005.
