?China automaker BYD has signed up international celebrity Leonardo DiCaprio as brand ambassador for its new energy vehicles.

As brand endorsements go, it’s not a bad mix: BYD supplied 11% of the world’s new energy vehicles in 2015.  DiCaprio’s foundation, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, has given $61 million over the years for projects that build climate resiliency.

“All over the world, people are realizing that cars that run on fossil fuels are inefficient and a major threat to the planet,” said DiCaprio said in a statement. “I am very pleased to be joining an effort to increase the number of clean vehicles on the road in China and beyond.” DiCaprio said.

The agreement runs through 2017.

BYD, which sells electric buses as well as cars, saw a 130% increase in new energy vehicle sales in the first half of 2016, allowing the company to strengthen its hold on the Chinese plug-in vehicle market with a 65% share.

BYD’s chairman Wang Chuanfu has a fortune worth $4.3 billion on the real-time Forbes Billionaires List.  The company is about 8% owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway.

Martin Scorsese will resume his creative partnership with Leonardo DiCaprio with his next film, The Devil in the White City.

The veteran director, who will release the Liam Neeson-starring Silence this week, has revealed which project he’ll be working on next, with biopics of Frank Sinatra and professional daredevil Evel Knievel also in the works.

Speaking to The Toronto Sun, Scorsese said that in January his focus will return to the adaptation of Erik Larson’s 2003 best-selling novel The Devil in the White City. “One of the things that I had to stop for the past six months was my meetings on that script,” he said. “They want me to start again in January and see if we can find a way because it’s an extraordinary story.”

DiCaprio is set to play the role of the novel’s serial killer, Dr. H. H. Holmes. Should everything go to plan, it will be the seventh time that Scorsese and DiCaprio have worked together as director and actor respectively. The partnership began with 2002’s Gangs of New York, and includes The DepartedShutter Island and The Wolf of Wall Street.

Meanwhile, Scorsese will digitally re-age another of his favourite actors to work with, Robert De Niro, in a new film. Read more about the upcoming gangster movie The Irishman here.

The Irishman, which will star both Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. The plot is said to center around mobster Frank Sheeran, with shooting finally scheduled to start next month after being in the works in one way or another for almost 25 years. Scorsese is reportedly sticking with the same cast he had planned when he first started writing the screenplay, and plans to “de-age” the actors with the same technology used by studios to create superhero movies.

Meanwhile, in Scorsese’s other project, Leonardo DiCaprio is expected to return to star in an adaptation of the hit historical novel The Devil In The White City. The story combines the story of the Chicago Worlds Fair (which inspired Walt Disney to create Disneyland) and the serial killer HH Holmes. DiCaprio will play Holmes, which seems like another spot of genius casting.

Unfortunately, neither film has received an official release date. Which one are you most looking forward to? Let us know in the comments below. Oh, and if you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the trailer for Silence.
