Leonardo DiCaprio And Martin Scorsese Are Teaming Up For Theodore Roosevelt Biopic
Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese are now adding another project to their long list of collaborations. They are working on a movie about the 26th President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt.
Leo is expected to portray the former President, and Scorsese is set to sit behind the lens for this project.
They will also be the producers of the movie and Deadline says that the future project will be set at Paramount Pictures.
The two of them last worked together in 2013's critically-acclaimed 'The Wolf of Wall Street.
They previously teamed up in movies 'Gangs of New York', 'The Aviator,' 'Shutter Island' and 'The Departed.'
Aside from bringing the life story of Teddy Roosevelt to the big screen, they are developing two more true-story pics.
One of them is called 'The Devil in the White City' about a serial killer who lured his victims into his elaborately constructed 'Murder Castle.'
The other one is 'Killers of the Flower Moon' that follows the birth of FBI.
It focuses especially on a series of murders of the members of the Osage tribe after the discovery of oil beneath their land.
The case became one of FBI's first major homicide investigations.
You probably saw DiCaprio on the big screen in 2015's 'The Revenant' which was a critical movie for him because it brought him his first Oscar.
Leo's next projects include a Stan Lee biopic, and he is currently approaching the comic-book legend to get approval to play him.
Martin Scorsese last directed 'Silence' in 2016. He is now finishing a crime movie called 'The Irishman' featuring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino.
Martin is reportedly courted by Warner Brothers to produce an origin Joker movie.
According to rumors, WB hopes to bring DiCaprio into the DC Extended Universe to replace Jared Leto as the psycho clown prince of crime. Well, that should be extremely interesting, and we can't wait to see the movie in case there will be one.
