AceShowbiz - Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese are adding another project to their long list of collaborations. The duo is working on a movie about the 26th President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt.
DiCaprio is expected to portray the former President and Scorsese is set to sit behind the lens for the project. The duo will also serve as producers. According to Deadline, the upcoming biopic is set at Paramount Pictures.
The actor and the director 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".
Besides bringing the life story of Teddy Roosevelt to the big screen, they are developing two more true-story pics. One is called "The Devil in the White City" about a serial killer who lured his victims into his elaborately constructed "Murder Castle". The other is "Killers of the Flower Moon" that depicts the birth of FBI. It focuses on a series of murders of the members of the Osage tribe after oil was discovered beneath their land. The case became one of FBI's first major homicide investigations.
Leonardo DiCaprio was last seen on the big screen in 2015's movie "The Revenant" that earned him his first ever Oscar win after multiple nominations in the past. His next projects include a Stan Lee biopic. He is reportedly approaching the comic-book legend to get approval to play him in a biopic.
Martin Scorsese last directed "Silence" in 2016. He is now finishing a crime movie called "The Irishman" starring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. He is reportedly courted by Warner Brothers to produce an origin Joker movie. Rumor has it, WB hopes to bring DiCaprio into the DC Extended Universe to replace Jared Leto as the psycho clown prince of crime.
