Dreamboat DiCaprio might not be taking the long break from acting that he originally intended.
Apparently, Leo is being eyed to tackle another novel-based film, this one set during The Great Depression by Michael Armour called The Road Home. The film will be directed and produced by Scott Cooper, and according to Deadline.com:
The Road Home is a Depression-era drama that focuses on Creek, a war-scarred rancher on the Central California coast who finds himself entangled in scandal when he is asked to investigate the brutal murder of a local man, a case that local police have swept under the rug.
Sounds pretty cool, although I admit that would be a bit surprised at Leo’s jumping into this so quickly, given his recent enthusiasm for wanting a little bit of a vacation from his apparent on-screen vacationing.
Nothing like a cure for yet another Oscar snub like making out with a bikini-clad blonde who looks like she emerged from the womb with airbrushed skin.
We’ll just have to wait and see.
