Leonardo DiCaprio & Jamie Foxx Reteaming for 'Mean Business'

Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx are set to work together again in the upcoming crime drama Mean Business on North Ganson Street, according to Deadline.

The film will follow “a disgraced detective (DiCaprio) who transfers to a town in Missouri and teams with another disgraced officer (Foxx) to fight crime after police officers in the town begin showing up dead execution style making the two believe someone is out to make war with the local authorities” (via Variety).

Leo and Jamie worked together on last year’s Oscar-winning film Django Unchained. Leo‘s recent flick The Great Gatsby is currently in theaters and Jamie‘s summer blockbuster White House Down opens this weekend.

    Hmm. It’s not on his IMDB. Sounds interesting. I wonder how this would play out compared to say The Departed?

    Jamie Foxxx says he has no white friends. Why, then, pretend with the photo op? Hypocrite.

    Sounds great! better than Rasputin imo.

    @Marybel: That was from the Django press tour. Wasn’t it Denzel who made the no white friend comment? I believe that Jamie has said that he was the recipient of a lot of racism in Texas, and he was distrustful of whites, but he had friends teach him that not all whites discriminate.
    @Great!!!: I’m with you there. Leo could make any role work, but Rasputin, meh.

    Leo, what an actor. Django Unchained was an excellent performance. Love Leo, who is also an environmentalist.

    Jamie Foxx is also excellent.

    Leo Fan Says:

    I still believe Leo should have won the Oscar over Jamie in 2005. His Howard Hugues performance was way much better than Jamie’s Ray Charles and certainly less caricatural.

    @Leo Fan: I never knew that and I did some research and the reason why Leo didn’t b/c the Oscars needed another black male actor to win for some reason not trying to play the race card at all, but when a black actor delivers and performance like that usually they are the front runner and wins….

    Leo Fan Says:

    I had the feeling it had to do with his race and of course the “political” campaign that ran in his favor before the award season put him as the front runner.
    His thank you speech was so cliche, I felt bad for him.
    To tell you the truth I was very glad he didn’t receive any nomination for Django.

    The Brittle Sisters (9 & 10) Says:

    Jamie won because he had an incredible performance. He’s a fantastic actor and deserves his success. Leo had a great role in The Aviator also, but saying that Jamie only won his Oscar because he is black is racist. Just because you say “not trying to play the race card” doesn’t mean what you say isn’t racist. It just means that you understand what you said is racist, but you chose to ignore good sense and say something racist anyway.

    @ Leo Fan Says:

    You can’t be much of a Leo Fan if you’re a huge bigot. Leo has many, many AA friends and was very uncomfortable with the language in Django Unchained. The man just tweeted his support for the gay community yesterday, which shows that he is supportive of (lifestyle) diversity. Even though Leo lost that Oscar, I don’t think that he would share your bigoted sentiments.

    … and before you can start talking smack, I am a white woman tearing you down a peg. Deservedly.

    Suri the meal ticket Says:

    I think the movie will be great! Jamie was so scorching hot in Django and Leo was super great, effortlessly ostentatious, as the pompous , and evil of course, lord of the plantation.

    But I’d like to see Leo team up with Sam Jackson again, the 2 were one of the best parts of Django.

    Who cares just so long as a PuertoRican doesn’t win I am happy.

    @ #12
    …….Why is it bigotry because he speaks the truth, what in 2013 only black people can say whatever the fu-k they want and white people have to play blind and dumb, that’s why liberals love political correctness they get to decide what’s allowed as acceptable public behaviour , and what “groups” are treated differently … Anyone with a half a brain knows if a black actor gives a half way descent performance they will be nominated for a Oscar and mostly likely win…. Just look at last year, Denzel should never have been nominated for a Flight and that little 9 year girl , Quvenzhane Wallis, nominated for best actress, please such bull, it’s all about getting some black faces in the Oscar nominations

    Slim Says:

    Can’t stand Jamie Fox, wouldn’t watch any movie he’s in, about time black celebrities get called out for their racist sh*t , just white celebrities are held to standards while these clowns get a free ride….. looks like Leo’s Appian Way is producing, why would he pick Fox, the guys awful actor and never has chemistry with other male actors on film, but then Leo’s Appian put Justin Timberlake as the lead in Runner, , , so casting isn’t their strength .

    From NY POST Says:

    Leonardo DiCaprio’s summer of yachts, babes and clubs continues after the “Great Gatsby” star kicked off the season in Cannes last month. DiCaprio was spotted surrounded by “a group of extra-friendly blond girls,” a source said, on Tuesday at 1Oak in Chelsea. He also hung with rapper Q-Tip at DJ Cassidy’s annual “Michael Jackson Remember the Time” party to commemorate the King of Pop. Spies said the bash raged from 11 p.m. till 5 a.m., with “six hours straight of Michael Jackson music” as Jacko impersonators made the rounds in single, sparkling gloves. The next day DiCaprio, recently said to be dating German model Toni Garrn, was at Marina at Pier 57 drinking a — perhaps much-needed — iced brew from Cold Process Coffee. Earlier, on Monday, he was at the 60 Madison Ave. showroom checking out models of five-bedroom penthouses listed for $25 million at the new condo project 10 Madison Square West, under construction at one of the former Toy Center buildings.

    Leo was spotted in NYC yesterday by several fans. Here’s a pic from Tumblr:

    other people tweeted about seeing him too. anyone find any tweets?

    also... Says:

    His bz thread has a tweet photo of him in a restaurant and this girl met him at the Darby ( talks about him and his assistant a little ).

    also... Says:

    *both the restaurant photo and the Darby tweets are from yesterday.
    As I said on the other thread it is noticeable how Page Six says `he is SAID TO BE dating Toni`.That`s it? Leo has been staying in NYC for a while and nothing about him and Toni by Page Six. Weird! They were on his case with Lively and Margot but now nothing?

  24. 24
    @23 Says:

    Odd when Page six wrote about Leo with Margot/Miranda some of you claimed NOT to believe it and the story was BS. Now they don’t write about Toni therefore its BS too? I guess we all interprete as we prefer

  25. 25
    also... Says:

    When did I say that not writing about Toni is BS? I said I find it interesting that they don`t have any info about them. Read my comment because I said nothing about credibility and BS or not. It was only about the fact that they had info about Leo with Margot and Lively and nothing about Toni. You are talking way more into my comment than it is. :)
