Leonardo Dicaprio - Leonardo Dicaprio To Film Wolf In Summer
Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese have set a date to begin filming 'The Wolf of Wall Street'.
The 'J Edgar' actor - who has worked with the acclaimed director four times previously - will take a starring role in the movie, which is based on the memoir by Jordan Belfort.
The movie will tell the tale of a hard-partying drug-fuelled stockbroker who was indicted in 1998 for security fraud and money laundering and consequently served a 22 month prison stretch.
Leonardo and Martin have been trying to get the project off the ground since 2007, but now a firm timeline has been set, with the movie shooting in New York in the summer.
Martin will produce the project as well as direct, with a script by Terence Winter.
The pair have previously worked together on 'Gangs of New York', 'The Aviator', 'The Departed' and 'Shutter Island'.
A planned release date is not yet known.
