Scorsese and DiCaprio May Work on Wall Street



Though no deals have been finalized yet, Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio are looking to team up for a fourth film together, called The Wolf of Wall Street. This film version of Jordan Belfort's autobiography, due to be published in September, will be adapted by "The Sopranos" writer Terence Winter. According to Variety:

In "Wolf of Wall Street" DiCaprio would play Belfort, a Long Island penny stockbroker who served 20 months in prison for refusing to cooperate in a massive 1990s securities fraud case that involved widespread corruption on Wall Street and in the corporate banking world, including mob infiltration. ...

Like "Catch Me if You Can," "Wolf" would be a two-hander with a key part for a second star: Much of the film would hinge on Belfort's relationship with the FBI agent who tried to make him an informant.

Hmm... more mob/corruption stuff? Well, okay, after The Aviator and Gangs of New York, Scorsese and DiCaprio found great success with The Departed, so maybe they ought to continue on that route. Though I must say I'm eager to see who they choose for the role of the FBI agent, since DiCaprio on his own doesn't impress me all that much.
