DiCaprio's Company Picks Up Another Title
This story is a few days old, but I think it's worth mentioning because (as most of you know) DiCaprio is one of my favorite actors. His production company, Appian Way Productions, has recently picked up the rights to a novel called "Beat The Reaper."
The story follows a New York City surgeon who is in the witness protection program when he gets noticed by a mobster who recognizes him from his previous life as a hitman.
Obviously since Appian Way picked this up, a connection could be made that this could be a starring vehicle for Leo, but nothing has been announced yet. Sounds like an interesting project that I hope to see hitting theaters within the next couple years.
