Leonardo DiCaprio & Martin Scorcese: 'The Gambler' Team?

Leonardo DiCaprio is attached to once again team up with director Martin Scorcese for a remake of the classic film The Gambler, according to Deadline.

The Gambler is about an academic whose “gambling addiction gets to the point where he convinces a student athlete to shave points so he can win a bet, and the high he experiences from risking everything takes him into even darker places.”

Leonardo and Martin previously worked together on Shutter Island, The Departed, The Aviator and Gangs of New York.

Leonardo is SO damn handsome.

`Darker places` Let me guess! Somehow it`s going to involve a dead wife and some crying again. A typical Dicaprio movie.

Who played in the original version of the Gambler? Was it James Caan? I’d sure love to see Leo in another movie project with Scorsese.

BTW, Jared…. thaks for posting something about Leo that has not the Flake’s name attached to it. What a relief.

Leonardo DiCaprio is a good, capable actor and all…. But I’m really going to be disappointed if Martin Scorsese doesn’t come through with the movie all of us real film fans want to see… The Irishman with Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci.

# 8

At last! Something we can discuss that has not Miss Plastic Surgery’s name to it. Scorsese and DiCaprio is a solid value.

# 9

Sounds boring, just like this overated actor. I’m so sick of di Crapio. I wish Scorcese would not attach himself AGAIN to di Crapio, there are other actors out there, someone should break it to him.

I love Scorcese and i love Dicaprio, I love the magic they bring to the camera…. definately will see it :)

Martin Scorsese’s college film professor and mentor Haig Manoogian (who he dedicated Raging Bull to at the beginning of the end credits) was Armenian. A lot of people don’t know that.

I wish Marty would make Sinatra next. I can’t wait to see Robert De Niro as Dean Martin and Al Pacino as Frank Sinatra.

You gotta know when to hold ‘em
Know when to fold ‘em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run …
