Clint Eastwood plans to produce and direct a feature film about astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon.

The actor-director said he has acquired the rights to "First Man: A Life of Neil A. Armstrong," a forthcoming authorized biography by historian James R. Hansen. Warner Bros. Pictures will release the film.

Eastwood, 72, who produced, directed and co-starred in 2001's "Space Cowboys," doesn't plan to star in the Armstrong biopic.
