Dicaprio To Star In Al Qaeda Story
Leonardo Dicaprio is set to track an Al Qaeda leader in a hardhitting new Ridley Scott drama.
The actor will play a journalist-turned-CIA agent who is given the task of locating a terrorist in Jordan, who is reportedly planning an attack on America in BODY OF LIES.
The film, which will dredge up memories of 9/11 when Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden organised a terrorist attack on New York and Washington, is to shoot in Morocco later this year (07).
The project will reteam DiCaprio with THE DEPARTED screenwriter William Monahan, who will adapt the story from David Ignatius' book.
