Leonardo DiCaprio eyes leading role in J.Edgar Hoover biopic

Leonardo DiCaprio is on a mission to make sure that Academy never forgets his name again; with “Shutter Island”, “Inception” and a bunch of other films either in production or development, Leo has set his sights on the J.Edgar Hoover biopic.

The film which is written by Dustin Lance Black, will be directed by Clint Eastwood and produced by Brian Grazer. According to Deadline, DiCaprio is in early talks to play the lead role and if all goes well this will be his first collaboration with Eastwood. I wonder what Martin Scorsese would say.

Production is set to begin later this year, which I’m sure will be followed by a late 2011 release.

I’m almost positive this will be a go because seriously, how do you say no to Clint Eastwood?

    I will watch Leo in just about anything. I will have to read more about JEH before the movie comes out. I loved him as Howard Hughes in Aviator.
