The 'J. Edgar' actor will produce and possibly star in a Warner Bros. adaptation of the Norwegian crime novel.

Leonardo DiCaprio is adapting Jo Nesbo's new book "Blood on Snow", Deadline reports. Warner Bros. is close to acquiring film rights to the novel with the "Django Unchained" actor as a producer. He could also potentially star in the upcoming movie adaptation.
