London: Actor Peter Facinelli is developing a movie about American spy Nathan Hale.

The `Twilight star` has acquired the film rights to M William Phelps` Nathan Hale: The Life and Death of America`s First Spy, which centres on the undercover agent who was executed in 1776 at the age of 21, reportedly.

"I am excited to bring the story of Nathan Hale to life, a man who sacrificed everything for what he believed in," he said.

The film was originally slated to be developed by producers at Warner Bros in 2007, but the project was shelved after that.
