Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio was born in Los Angeles, CA. He's been known mostly for his role as Jack Dawson in Titanic and has been in lots of other project along with his former co-star Kate Winslet in which they reunited in Revolutionary Road. His next movie will feature him as Hugh Glass in The Revenant.
Leonardo DiCaprio is getting closer to playing a role he’s eyed for nearly 20 years — that of Billy Milligan, who was the first person to successfully use multiple personality disorder as a defense in a court of law.
DiCaprio’s Appian Way has come aboard to produce The Crowded Room with New Regency, while Jason Smilovic and Todd Katzberg have been hired to write the adapted script. Smilovic’s credits include Lucky Number Slevin and Todd Phillips’ upcoming Arms and the Dudes at Warner Bros.
In addition to starring, DiCaprio will serve as a producer alongside Jennifer Davisson and Alexandra Milchan. Crowded Room further bolsters the relationship between DiCaprio and New Regency, who are currently in production together on The Revenant, director Alejandro G. Inarritu’s follow-up to New Regency and Fox Searchlight’s Oscar-winning Birdman.
The Crowded Room has been set up at New Regency for years, but never got off the ground (the project has been dormant for a decade). Smilovic’s hire gives renewed life to the adaptation of Daniel Keyes’ nonfiction tome about Milligan, who had 24 personalities. DiCaprio has been interested in playing him stretching back to 1997.
Published in 1981, Keyes’ book chronicles Milligan’s story, including his court trial in the late 1970s in Ohio after being charged with robbery and raping three women on the Ohio State University campus.
In the preparation of his defense, Milligan — who died in December 2014 — was diagnosed with multiple personality disorder. Pleading insanity, he and his lawyers contended that two of his alternate personalities committed the crimes without his knowledge. He was the first to use this defense, and the first to be acquitted for this reason.
I did a recent affiliates clean up since there was tons of dead links. So all that’s been cleared up. I also posted a few new articles on our facebook page. Most recent stuff was from SNL’s 40th anniversary and also John Currin’s show at the Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills.
Leo attended both events with his mother Imerlin. You can view the image below. For both articles you can go here to read them: Daily Mail and Bustle
Shooting this month in Calgary (average nighttime low: 9 degrees) the writer-director has partnered with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy to tell the true story of Hugh Glass (DiCaprio), an American fur trapper and frontiersman in the early 1800s. After being mauled by a grizzly bear and left for dead, Glass made a heroic 200-mile trek back to civilization to find the men who abandoned him in his time of need, played by Hardy, Will Poulter, and Domnhall Gleeson.
“He’s a brave, incredible actor. I’m so surprised about how good he is,” Iñárritu says of DiCaprio. “I think there’s a profound understanding of humanity that I can see through his eyes.”
The Oscar winner and his new millennium muse teamed up with old Scorsese partner Robert De Niro and wild card Brad Pitt to make a commercial for a movie-themed casino and resort in Macau along with another resort in Manila.
The casino owners spared no expense in bringing aboard big names to lend Hollywood glamour to the gambling Xanadu: They reportedly spent a whopping $70 million for the Scorsese-directed production, according to the New York Post. The full commercial, entitled “The Audition” is expected to launch later this year.
Found some new things you may or might not have seen. Found a behind the scenes thing from Tag Heuer on a website that I posted on our facebook page. Photos are originally by Frank Terry. Also an old photoshoot from Russh Magazine on photos from Hugh Stewart for Romeo and Juliet.
It wasn’t meant to be Claire Danes. Natalie Portman was first in line for Baz Luhrmann’s Juliet. But things don’t always go according to plan. Or so says Hugh Stewart, the portrait photographer who gave us a Romeo-era Leonardo DiCaprio and so much more.
“I was living in London in this quite notorious and well-known squat that I helped set up. It was 1981 and I was interested in taking photographs. There was this great subject matter around: there were a lot of people who went to Goldsmiths, The Royal College of Art, RADA, that went to the Slade (School of Fine Art), there were people from Siouxsie and the Banshees living there, Tom Dixon – the industrial designer – was my neighbor, there was a very well-known photographer called Cindy Palmano who used to work for the NME, and we all lived in this place. As a result, we built darkrooms and did all this stuff. I got more involved than I had been in photography and just started photographing the people who lived there … The squat came to an end and that period in London ended right about the time that hip-hop started. I still remember listening to White Lines coming across the rooftops one morning.”
Dressed in an aged flannelette shirt that could have been around since ‘81 and light denim jeans, Hugh Stewart is a tall, informal gentleman who loves to tell a story. You don’t get the feeling he’s embellishing the facts; instead he was just there in the right place, at the right time. The first oldest son in six generations not to take over the family farm in New Zealand, Stewart instead followed his loves – photography and the women in his life – all over the world.
Martin Scorsese will team up with regular collaborators Leonard DiCaprio and Robert De Niro to make a short film also starring Brad Pitt.
Brett Ratner’s Ratpac Entertainment have been commissioned by Melco-Crown Entertainment to produce the short which will be used as part of a campaign for the global resorts and casino brand.
According to Deadline Scorsese’s short has been scripted by The Wolf of Wall Street writer and Boardwalk Empire creator Terrence Winter.
The film is due to be shown next year in China at the opening of Melco-Crown’s new movie-themed resort in Macau’s Studio City. It will be used to promote the company’s expansion in Asia and globally.
Plot details for the short are under wraps. It will be the first time Scorsese, Di Caprio, De Niro and Pitt have worked together on the same film. De Niro and DiCaprio first worked together on the coming of age tale This Boy’s Life in 1993. Scorsese made gambling themed thriller Casino in 1995 which also starred De Niro
Deadline suggest this could be the perfect warm up for the director’s long gestating Frank Sinatra movie
De Niro is currently filming The Intern with Anne Hathaway while DiCaprio’s next film The Revenant, directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, is in pre-production.
Leonardo DiCaprio has been very busy this year, playing major roles in three movies back to back: Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby and Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf Of Wall Street. It’s not uncommon for the veteran actor to wrap more than one movie in one year, but he admits that this has been a unique situation for him.
“They were all roles I really, really wanted to play,” he tells me when I meet him at the London Hotel in New York. “It’s been 3 movies in a row and usually I like to have a lot more time in between to think about them but it’s given me a lot of newfound sort of energy. It’s interesting because once you get into that mode of just constantly working and constantly focusing it’s like a basketball season; you’re just constantly playing. You have no time to stop or reflect, just go, go, go and it’s amazing. It keeps you in good acting shape,” he laughs, nodding his head.
But this hardship has taken its toll on the 38-year-old actor, who still retains a trace of the boyish look and demeanour that he is known for. Hence, he has cleaned his next year’s slate in order to take time off to reflect on everything in his life and refocus his attention on his environmental causes.
Oscar-nominated movie star Leonardo DiCaprio will be returning to Alberta to shoot his next film, a revenge Western called The Revenant, the Calgary Herald has learned.
Sources say the film will be shot in both B.C. and Alberta, likely in the fall. No firm dates or locations have been confirmed, but sources say production officials have already opened an office in Vancouver and are looking for space in Calgary.
“It’s anticipated a shooting schedule in the October to March range,” said the source about the Alberta shoot. “Eighty days of shooting.”
According to movie-industry news sources, it will be directed by Mexican filmmaker Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, best known for dramas such as 21 Grams, Babel and Biutiful. Actors Tom Hardy and Will Poulter, best known for his role in the comedy We’re the Millers, will co-star.
DiCaprio and Hardy were in Alberta in 2010 to shoot Christopher Nolan’s big-budget spectacle Inception.
Based on a novel by Michael Punke, the film “centers on the 1820s’ story of a frontiersman, Hugh Glass, who set out on a path of vengeance against those who left him for dead after a bear mauling,” according to Internet Movie Database.
Los Angeles Times reports that Emmanuel Lubezki, the Oscar-winning cinematographer who shot Gravity, has also signed on for the project.
The Wolf of Wall Street (2014) as Jordan Belfort
Based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, from his rise to a wealthy stock-broker living the high life to his fall involving crime, corruption and the federal government.
