Who, if not Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese, prove that sometimes pictures that have been in development for years still get a chance to get to the big screens. The actor and director, who have shot five films together, have been looking for a new joint project for a long time, and, according to Collider, they may be Theodore Roosevelt's biopic.|
DiCaprio has long wanted to work on a biographical drama about the 26th President of the United States, and now Paramount Studio is ready to support the Oscar winner. Leo plans to play Roosevelt himself, and Scorsese will take the director's chair. Aspiring writer Scott Bloom received an invitation to write the script for the future drama.
It is not yet clear what period of the president's life will form the basis of the biopic. A few years ago, the idea was to adapt the Pulitzer Prize-winning book The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt by Edmund Morris.
However, the biographical drama still has to wait in the wings. Martin Scorsese is still busy filming Irishman, and DiCaprio is known for his habit of working through many projects for various studios, in order to then choose the most attractive and promising one. Among the joint plans of the famous tandem and without Roosevelt's biopic there are several films, and recently in Hollywood there was a rumor that Warner Bros. persuades Scorsese to produce a film about the Joker, in which DiCaprio could play the iconic DC villain.
