    So, when is filming supposed to start? It’s not made necessarily clear within the VARIETY article. Anyone? I’d like to think spring, as most new filming productions/projects (within the industry) appear to begin around that season usually. But, if anyone knows the exact season/timing, do say…

    This is the first time I’d heard of this film likewise. As for all the other films that were mentioned before this? Seems he wanted to go with a script and an idea of character where he felt he would vibe/relate more with and also be able to pull something “unique” from this role than the others. And he also probably didn’t want to run into “The McConaughey Curse” either heehee :) Look like after Matthew won his Oscar he just had bad movie after bad movie..

    Well, it also looks like what I said regarding “The end is near,” is HERE now :)

  • Guest

    Yahoo but when does it start filming?!!! He has announced several “next films” 😕.

  • also…

    This isn’t happening anytime soon. The book hasn’t even been released, there’s no script lol. This is just another project in development which may take years to happen.

  • Surfgirl

    Few? Usually like 7 for him

  • also…

    Not this year. He just acquired the rights to a book which hasn’t been released. Look how long it takes for them to finally go into production. This one doesn’t even have a script.

  • also…

    Yea he has a lot of stuff in production. WOWS went into production 7 years later. Whatever he decides to do next the script would have to be ready.

  • Guest

    Yep, definitely not this year. You know, part of me thinks he’s still recuperating from ‘The Revenant’ shoot. It’s going to take a little while.

  • Stephanie

    Just read: Leo will next star in The Ballad of Richard Jewell, which is rumored to be Clint Eastwood’s next project as well. So, Ballad will be after this one–and I guess Eastwood is the producer? If so, there it is.

  • Guest

    What do you think is the reason behind this recent spate of “next movie” announcements that won’t happen until much later? Is it just to keep his name on the film community’s tongue? Not sure.

  • Guest

    I thought he was only producing that one???

  • guest_3141

    According to the Deadline Hollywood article they’re in the process of hiring a writer to adapt the book. I wonder if it will shoot this year…hopefully so!

  • Guest

    We shall see 😊

  • Stephanie

    According to HR: “The pic will adapt the upcoming book by Stephan Talty that follows a detective chasing down a criminal organization that leaves a symbol of a black hand at its crime scenes.” The book is scheduled to hit shelves in April…which more than likely means the movie is not too far behind beginning filming then…

  • miau

    the end’s near is here?now?do u think? l’d bet one month more,two at most,she seemed so happy in the lasts pic in ig that l ‘m assuming he’ll have her for a little while longer.

  • Dis gonna be gud

    This new lined up project will probably never get made. The wait for an announcement of a project with a screenwriter and director also attached continues.

  • Dis gonna be gud

    Leo has always attached himself to a lot of projects. He probably can’t help it.

  • Stephanie

    She always looks “happy” as though everything is “up and coming.” She HAS to sell it. Yet, HIS actions always manifest what is REALLY “being sold” and “shelved.” It won’t be long. As the saying goes: anything that sounds and looks too good to be true, usually is. It won’t be long :)

  • also…

    Leo signed that deal with Paramount so right now they’re just acquiring stuff he may be interested in doing for them.

  • Stephanie

    Leo will be presenting at the 15th Annual “The Night Before” It’s an event before the Oscars…

  • Surfgirl

    Oh no Isn’t that when the razzies are? Oh well he can always go to the after party

  • Stephanie

    I’ve always thought the razzies were dumb and mean-spirited. To be picked for…being the worst?? That’s just…smh HA. Guess he will…

  • Fangirl

    Unfortunately 😩

  • moviebuff

    ZZZzzzzz… Yeah, this is not an imminent project. On the plus side, not a biopic, but still a period piece.
