DiCaprio Becoming Latest Star To Enter The World Of Gambling
Hollywood and gambling have gone hand in hand for years. many of the biggest stars in the movie industry have tried their hands on the big screen either as big time gamblers, or the people that were chasing them.
Leonardo DiCaprio will now become the latest mega-star that will take a lead role in a gambling movie. Brian Koppleman and David Levien are the writers of the script, which does not yet have a name.
The movie will center on the online gambling industry, and will feature Costa-Rica based online casinos. Outside of those facts, not much more has been released as far as the details of the movie. DiCaprio has been a media and fan darling ever since his riveting performance in "Titanic".
"I imagine that Leonardo will be great no matter what the role calls for," said movie fan Beatrice Frelly, "he has played such a wide variety of characters that he should have no problem adapting to a movie set around gambling."
Koppleman and Levien do, however, have experience writing about gambling. The pair were the masterminds behind "Rounders", a movie that many believe is one of the best gambling movies of all time. DiCaprio's buddy Matt Damon and Edward Norton were the stars of that movie, which took place in the underground poker world.
The new movie comes at a time when DiCaprio has already been working with Koppleman and Levien. They will be collaborating on "Beat The Reaper", which will be based off of the novel by Josh Bazell.
