Entertainment company Warner Brothers is reportedly trying to bring Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio into the upcoming Joker origin movie.
The studio is eyeing DiCaprio to play The Joker in the movie that will explore the origin story of the Batman supervillain.
The Warner Brothers are allegedly trying to convince Martin Scorsese to get ‘The Revenant’ actor on board. However, no offer has been made to the ‘Django Unchained’ star since Scorsese’s deal to produce the project has not been finalised.
Scorsese and DiCaprio are frequent collaborators. They teamed up in ‘The Aviator’, ‘Gangs of New York’, ‘The Departed’, ‘Shutter Island’ and ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’.
Actor Jared Leto, who originally plays the Clown Prince of Crime in the DC Extended Universe movie franchise has reportedly heard of the rumors and he was not happy.
Todd Phillips and Scott Silver are hired to write the treatment for the DC criminal mastermind notorious for his face paint and permanent smile. Other details are still scarce. Rumor has it, the movie could revolve around a young bullied version of the infamous character.
They have been friends since the Nineties. And it seems like Leonardo DiCaprio and Lukas Haas still haven’t grown out of their boyhood playfulness. The 42-year-old Oscar-winner and 41-year-old fellow thespian were spotted gallivanting around New York City together on Thursday.
Boys will be boys! Leonardo DiCaprio was seen being chased by Lukas Haas as they hailed a cab in New York City on Thursday. At one point Lukas even chased a giggling Leo as they hopped into a taxi together. The two men seemed to be having some good old fashioned fun as they shared a few laughs together while hanging out in the Big Apple. Leo was dressed comfortably as always in a pair of grey shorts with a white T-shirt. He completed the casual cool look with navy blue loafers and a blue Los Angeles Dodgers baseball cap.
‘Titanic’ Stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet Together in Saint-Tropez
The famous “Titanic” couple hung out at Leo’s villa in Saint-Tropez, France in late July … and the 2 are clearly still very tight.
Kate was visiting to attend the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation annual charity gala, but the old friends and fellow Oscar-winners found some time to chill by the pool and catch up.
And our hearts will go on.
