Kathy Bates has agreed to re-team with Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet in Sam Mendes' "Revolutionary Road."


Another "Titanic" crew member has landed her feet on the same vehicle her fellow workers are riding.

Marking her reunion with both Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, Kathy Bates has reached deals to take starring part in "Revolutionary Road", the DreamWorks adaptation of Richard Yates' acclaimed 1961 novel of the same title.

Set in the 1950s, the drama focuses on a suburban Connecticut couple whose relationship deteriorates into an endless cycle of squabbling, jealousy and recriminations. Bates will portray a woman named Mrs. Givings who sells the couple their home and introduces them to the town.

Also come onboard to star are Michael Shannon, David Harbour, and Zoe Kazan who have already been billed to play Mrs. Givings' son, a neighbor named Shep Campbell, and the secretary of DiCaprio's character, respectively.

Filming is scheduled to begin June this year outside New York with Sam Mendes directing from the script written by Justin Haythe. Mendes is also in charge to produce alongside Scott Rudin, John Hart, and Bobby Cohen while David Thompson, Henry Fernaine and Marion Rosenberg will all seat as executive producers.
