Leonardo DiCaprio's Leonardo da Vinci Biopic Gets Picked Up By Paramount

Leonardo DiCaprio‘s anticipated Leonardo da Vinci biopic has found a home!

The 42-year-old actor is set to star in the flick, which is based on Walter Isaacson’s book on Leonardo da Vinci.

The rights to the film were just picked up by Paramount after a tough seven-figure bidding war with Universal, according to Deadline.

Leonardo is set to produce the film under his Appian Way banner alongside president of production Jennifer Davisson.

The role comes as no surprise for Leonardo, whose mother claims to have named him after the artist because when she was pregnant she felt him kick for the first time while viewing a da Vinci piece.

    On her BZ page they said last week she deleted all her photos with her boyfriend Oliver from her IG … lmao. Mr. Steal Your Girl strikes again

  • Miss Plum

    Agree! She’s cute. Yay for brunettes

  • Guess

    Hi, there’s nothing official, what do you mean??? And she’s barely cute and plain.

  • chaz

    Just two weeks ago you guys were claiming he was with Carol, then Elizabeth, and of course Jenny who Zzzz started calling Jennifer like they were on a first name basis….Lorena is no different and probably sleeping with Milano or one of his friends. Every single woman does not have to be linked with him or sleep with him!

  • chaz

    I think she’s pretty cute too. I don’t think she’s an official though. In two weeks it will be someone else

  • Guess

    I totally agree. It doesn’t seem to be anything but friends. So what she deleted photos of her ex and seen With his friends and hanging out, lol. I also asked why assumed Elizabeth would be around for her birthday, lol.

  • Miss Plum

    We are all a first name basis

  • also…

    Someone called her his fiancee today so I think something is going on lol

  • Miss Plum

    So maybe he’ll try dating a different type of girl. I mean model lol

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! I called her Jennifer by accident and besides, what’s the big deal?

  • also…

    what’s the big deal? Something was probably going on with those giris or other girls. I mean Leo hasn’t been celibate since breaking up with Nina. At the end of the day its just speculation until he picks his next model gf. We went through the same thing last year with Nina and she ended up becoming an official lol. Yes not every single girl he’s linked to is sleeping with him. And I doubt Lorena left her good looking soccer boyfriend for Milano or for one of Leo’s friends lol.

  • also…

    Oh and Pookie and Damon are back in LA. I saw them on someone’s ig story last night. Don’t know where Milano is lol

  • Guess

    lol is right at this point.

  • Guess

    That means nothing, lol. We will see.

  • Koos

    sorry for all, he postponed his retirement………….

  • chaz

    I hear what you are saying and get where you are coming from but do want to add one thing. There are plenty of women out there who would be willing to throw away their long term relationships to hook up with Leo’s friends. Why? Because they are that much closer to Leo. Think of it like this, a groupie for a musician is willing to sleep with anyone or do anything if it means getting that much closer to her idol. Because once she gets close enough, maybe he’ll notice her…heck, we even have Sky here, ready and willing to put herself out there to Judah on the what if. Can you blame her? What if she were to succeed? She might have to work her way up from the bottom but if her plan works, she’ll be on the next trip yachting with the wolves. So yes, plenty of women would dump their relationships for Leo’s friends. And an eager Instagram model at that? Forget about it.

  • Basil Faulty

    he is such a creep

  • chaz

    I have a good example of someone I have first hand knowledge about. You know the Backsteet Boy Nick Carter? His now wife was pregnant & engaged to another man (his friend) when she first met Him. She dropped the baby and the fiancé for a chance to be with him and now they are married, no prenup and have a child. So it happens.

    Well, it is interesting. Maybe no potentials panned out in Maldives, and she was willing to drop her bf for him when others weren’t. But she shows up in NY by herself, now without a boyfriend, and he his hanging out there instead of vacationing. Maybe waiting to see what becomes of her VS tryout. Kind of suspicious.
    I agree the tweet is baseless except that they were together. We know they aren’t engaged. Poor Nina was overlooked in most tweets, and she was his girlfriend. We just know she was there.

  • pppf

    In some of her pics, her hair is highlighted, which wouldn’t surprise me if she lightened it for both VS and him. He might keep the relationship down low, which I don’t blame him. He might not even confirm they are dating this time, but just do it.

  • Relax

    She was dumped after yachts pictures.

  • Guess

    He just finished vacation as well. So,l don’t find suspicious plus we all know Leo loves NYC.

  • pppf

    But he is not doing anything. He even went to a baseball game, which I don’t think he likes. Maybe. I thought he usually vacationed in Europe this time of year. He seems bored.

  • Guess

    GM!, That sounds crazy. She dropped her own child and married his famous friend, SMH.

  • Guess

    I think he should be bored with flying all over the place and partying. He needs to do something where he can be relaxed. Leo also seems to really enjoy NYC. Plus, he just vacationed after his foundation which he does. Just a little different this year with no GF and 1OAK giving a party in the Islands.

  • Guess

    Hi, there’s also no proof she dropped her BF for Leo, another assumption.

  • pppf

    He also has been quiet from the bar scene the last couple of days. Who knows what is going on. And s he has been quiet on her IG. We may never know if he doesn’t publicly come out with this relationship, which he may not. He may decide to keep this one private, if anything is going on. If she gets VS, I would say she is a shoe in, but it seems like a long shot. We’ll see.

  • Guess

    Yeah, she’s not the VS type. He needed to take a break from the bar scene. That’s doesn’t mean it has anything to do with her. As for IG, her we go again with playing the games and deleting to get attention. She got her 15mins of fame if that is what she wanted, smh.

  • pppf

    True. But the fact she removed all of his photos from IG is pretty telling. I noticed that the next photos from the two beautiful Israeli models when they returned from the Maldives were with their boyfriends. She seem to have traveled here by herself, so I guess we’ll see. LOL Leo must be getting lonely.

  • Guess

    By the way, she posted yesterday and deleted. She been posting and was on her girlfriend’s IG from what I read yesterday.

  • Guess

    I think most delete Ex’ photos. It is been blowing out of proportion because it’s Leo. People delete photos of their Exs all the time.

  • pppf

    I don’t know if she is a game player. She made her fame from IG. Leo might have asked her to remove it since word got out to Page Six.

  • Guess

    True. We don’t know. She just seems to me no offense another dumb model in the making, very sad!!

  • pppf

    The breakup was very weird timing. Unless she cheated on him and he dumped her like George Boy did Nina.

  • pppf

    To me Leo knows the score. It’s a trade off. He knows that. She lives in Germany so not sure how that’s going to work. Plus she is German, maybe Mom will like her.

  • Guess

    You are reading way too much way too early. Where are getting this theory about her cheating?? We don’t know their relationship. It’s obvious she’s there for the VS showing and they said were friends. Why jumping when we don’t know anything. And Leo was at the game with friends and they have been no couple pics.

  • Guess

    Again, you are way ahead reading too much!!

  • pppf

    Yea, it’s too early. But since Nina, I think his next relationship will probably be more quiet. She is not well known and he keeps getting flack for dating under 25 and dumping them when they turn that age. His relationships don’t have much longevity. Probably just doesn’t want to be lonely. I wonder when the VS tryouts are?

  • Guess

    I heard this week.

  • Josie

    She was posting IG Stories every day since she is in NY. Don’t know how much she normally post’s. So maybe she cut back, but she didn’t stop

  • CourtneyBettyEricLee

    Another biopic??? Lawd why. Damn Leo!!!

  • Josie
  • Guess

    Exactly!! She’s enjoying her time in NYC I guess before going back to Germany.

  • chaz

    Agreed! And GM ☀️
