Leonardo DiCaprio

Although Martin Scorsese is not including Leonardo Dicaprio in his upcoming movie “The Irishman,” the duo WILL be collaborating yet again very soon.

Namely, DiCaprio and Scorsese have several movies in development at the moment: “The Devil In The White City” and “Killers Of The Flower Moon,” and they are soon adding another one – a biopic drama about a former US President, Theodore Roosevelt.

To everybody’s surprise the movie is called “Roosevelt.”

DiCaprio Finally Gets To Be Theodore

We know that DiCaprio has been trying to tackle the role of this particular former president for a while now, and although the previous attempt never managed to get into production, the actor will now finally be portraying the former president of the US, Theodore Roosevelt.

Scott Bloom is penning the script as we speak and Scorsese is now officially the main man behind the camera.

Paramount has managed to snatch the rights for the movie, while they will also have a first-look deal with DiCaprio’s Appian Way company.

As far as the story is concerned, Roosevelt definitely had an eventful and interesting life that is worthy of getting a movie. As Empire writes:

“Given his military exploits, and a political track that saw him rocket through the New York governorship and then to vice president under William McKinley, rising to the top job after McKinley was assassinated in 1901. He became known for his conservation work, setting up national parks and forests…”

Stay tuned for more information on project Roosevelt!
