Woah, we definitely didn't see this one coming!
Mel Gibson will direct Leonardo DiCaprio in an upcoming period drama set during Viking times, reports Variety. Not many details are known about the film, but DiCaprio will play a Viking in a storyline that will apparently be "as unsparing as Gibsonâ€™s other period directing efforts." Leo with horns and some major 'tude? We can dig it!
The film will start shooting next fall, and co-producer Graham King tells Variety, â€œThis will be an awe-inspiring story, created with some of the industryâ€™s finest cinematic talent and I am just over the moon to be making this film with Mel, Leo and Bill [Monahan, screenwriter]."
Sounds interesting! And who knew Leo was such a Viking enthusiast?
