Leonardo DiCaprio adores to work with his friend Martin Scorsese, both Oscar winners are reuniting for the new biopic. This time, the actor and director will work on the set of the historical drama about Theodore Roosevelt.
The 42-year-old Oscar winner will star in the Paramount Pictures biopic and also produce the film through his production company Appian Way with Jennifer Davisson. Earlier, DiCaprio expressed a desire to play another historical personality, Vladimir Lenin, but there still no news about this project, even a hint at it.
DiCaprio reportedly felt connected to the film because of Roosevelt’s deep commitment to conservationism, including his achievements around reserves, national parks and forests.
The news site also reported that Leo had attempted to film the flick years ago but further action ceased.
DiCaprio and Scorses about new biopic
The dynamic duo, Leonardo and Martin, has worked together on multiple feature films, including Shutter Island, Gangs of New York, The Aviator and The Departed for which Scorsese received an Academy Award for directing.
The new biopic will follow Theodore Roosevelt’s history in becoming the youngest president of the United States. That gentleman was at the age of 42 after President William Mckinley was assassinated in 1901, so, DiCaprio is just a perfect option for such character.
Scott Bloom has been penned to write the drama surrounding the ex-president Roosevelt’s eventful life.
