Leonardo DiCaprio To Produce Biopic On ‘Calvin And Hobbes’ Creator Bill Watterson

Calvin and Hobbes

It's been an odd year for Bill Watterson. The iconic Calvin and Hobbes creator -- whose reclusive nature has informed his legacy almost as much as his brilliant comic strip in recent years -- saw the release last month of a documentary about the cartoonist and his legendary comic strip. Shortly before its release, Watterson engaged in a rare interview as well.

Based on the trailer, that seems to be the thrust of director Joel Allen Schroeder's new documentary Dear Mr. Watterson, which comes to theaters next month. Check out the trailer below.
