The LA Times reports that Leonardo DiCaprio has expressed interest in The Creed of Violence, an adaptation of Boston Teran’s novel about a criminal attempting to sneak weapons into Mexico who is captured by a government agent instead.
The movie might be turned into a western and director Todd Field has offered DiCaprio one of the two lead roles, either the bad guy or the government agent.
But DiCaprio is committed with Quentin Tarantino’s next film Django Unchained, in addition to talks saying that Paul Greengrass might be on board of The Deep Blue Good-By, a detective film that DiCaprio is attached to. Which means DiCaprio is pretty busy, as always.
DiCaprio did star in a western before, Quick and The Dead alongside Sharon Stone. Which probably makes him able to move some things and fit the movie in his schedule.
