Will we see Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese team up again for a Theodore Roosevelt biopic? The actor and director are famous for their epic collaborations which include “Gangs of New York”, “The Departed” and “The Wolf of Wall Street” to name a few. Recent reports suggest that DiCaprio is keen to develop a Theodore Roosevelt biopic with him in the lead as the titular character. He is willing to take on the project with Martin Scorsese serving behind the lens as the helmer of the pic. The movie will be based on Edmund Morris’ Pulitzer prize winning biography “The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt”, which chronicles Roosevelt’s journey from childhood to the presidency.

“He says it’s ‘now or never’ as he’s patiently waited almost a decade for the money to materialize,” – Leo reportedly planned the biopic years ago
