Leonardo DiCaprio and Mel Gibson to Make Movie About Vikings 2009-12-14 09:30:47

Leonardo DiCaprio and Mel Gibson to Go Viking

Leonardo DiCaprio and Mel Gibson are teaming up and going back in time for a period piece about Vikings. Not much is known about the project as of yet (including the title), but Gibson is slated to direct while DiCaprio will be the one slipping on the horns. William Monahan, whose credits include The Departed and Body of Lies, will pen the script — obviously he knows a thing or two about writing for DiCaprio.

The film is already being compared to Braveheart, and it certainly sounds like the kind of epic drama that DiCaprio loves to sink his teeth into. Plus, we all know that he's totally still lusting after an Oscar. Are you ready to see DiCaprio head into Viking battle?
