Looks like this is again the time of Leonardo DiCaprio! And, we are all very excited about it. Recently, the first look photos of DiCaprio’s next release ‘Don’t Look Up’ had dropped giving us an anticipatory fit. By the time the audience was able to process the blurb of the upcoming film, DiCaprio seems to have landed himself another fantastic deal.
Oscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio is in final talks to play religious cult leader Jim Jones in an upcoming feature written by Scott Rosenberg. Known as the leader of the Peoples Temple religious group, Jones was behind the November 1978 mass suicide at his Jonestown settlement that took more than 900 lives, reports variety.com. Jones and his inner circle orchestrated the massacre at the jungle commune in Guyana, with the followers directed to drink cyanide-adulterated punch.
MGM secured a deal for the feature project in a preemptive situation, with Leonardo DiCaprio also producing the project alongside Jennifer Davisson for their Appian Way production company. Rosenberg is also on board as an executive producer. Founded in 2001 by DiCaprio, Appian Way Productions produced Alejandro Inarritu’s three-time Academy Award-winner ‘The Revenant’, Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-nominated ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’, the Academy Award-nominated ‘The Aviator’ and ‘Shutter Island’, as well as the Peabody Award-winning documentary “Sea of Shadows,” Scott Cooper’s ‘Out of the Furnace’ and George Clooney’s ‘The Ides of March, among others.
