Leonardo DiCaprio Is Playing Theodore Roosevelt in a Martin Scorsese Biopic

Leonardo DiCaprio just landed a new role as former president Theodore Roosevelt.

The Paramount Pictures biopic, called Roosevelt, will be directed by Martin Scorsese.

The former president’s achievements in conservation are particularly of interest to Leo – whose own foundation is dedicated to environmental conservation, climate change, and indigenous rights – which is why he chose to play the part according to Deadline.

Leo and Marin previously worked together on several movies including The Wolf of Wall Street, The Departed and The Aviator, and are currently developing more films together, including The Devil in the White City and Killers of the Flower Moon.

Scott Bloom is writing the Roosevelt script.

    That’s great but WHEN is he going to actually start shooting a movie again?

  • also…

    I still think Killers of the flower moon is most likely his next project. This doesn’t even have a script. Scott Bloom rises lol

    I’m most interested in The Devil in the White City. I wish that was next…

    This is a bad idea after Edgar. jmo.

    Leo who are you hugging and kissing in this video?

    I agree. I feel like this would be really boring and forgettable like Edgar.

  • Galaxy Girl

    What is that about?

  • commonsense

    That’s the only one that has interested me too.

  • disqus_A7XiMHCkke

    The other two sounds boring to me.

  • JanaHelen

    Must be a ghost cause I can’t see anyone

  • Neon

    I see it. Don’t expect much from these ‘women’ on this board. They’re vagina’s would begin to dry and shrivel up into the likes of a mushroom if they even considered Leo having the hots for another man.

  • Neon

    Must be you. I see very clearly a dark haired male.

  • Neon

    Leo has retired from making movies most likely.

  • Neon

    “Roosevelt” will never be made.

  • disqus_A7XiMHCkke

    Nobody can. We just discussed this on the previous thread but she won’t believe us.

  • Galaxy Girl

    I did not read all of the comments on the last thread. But if they say the same thing you are saying now, we are seeing two different things. I have a feeling that most on here wouldn’t even be able to entertain the idea that it’s possible.

  • Neon

    I doubt Leo is leaning over wrapping his arms around and head tilt kissing the air.

  • ??

    girl, it looks like he whispers to someone’s ear. But not kissing.

  • Neon
  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! Repost from other thread!
    There is a guy, who I think might be Tobey and it looks like Leo is leaning in to say something to him when the guy puts his hand on his shoulder. As for hugging and kissing – a very vivid imagination – lol!

  • Neon

    And is hugging him like Jonah on SNL skit.

  • Neon

    Oh yes, I’ve imagined that he wrapped his arms around him. Come on….

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! I thought we would have new news, but hasn’t this been talked about before, I think maybe last year or the year before? Teddy is very interesting, but to be honest, I would like to see him do a more challenging role, one that will push him – a la Calvin Candie. Leo can do an evil character brilliantly!
    EDIT: I mean I would rather not seem him do another bio!!!

  • ??

    So why did you delete the photos now?? I looked and quickly they disappeared!! Why?

  • Neon

    The tinypic site was not working so I tried another. They are on the site I reposted.

  • ??

    To me it was working good. You had to click “zoom” and it open the pic. Now I can’t open any more….

  • CourtneyBettyEricLee

    Fair enough. But you already know how I feel:
    “ANOTHER Bipoic?” FFS!
    I give up and’ll say no more on it.

  • Galaxy Girl

    Well I guess you can call that imagination. It’s clear in the video. Doesn’t bother me either way.

  • Galaxy Girl

    Me too!

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! I fixed my comment – meant to say, I don’t want him to do another bio – enough already – lol!

  • ??

    On the tinypic side was it better! You have to register now if you want to see the pics, but I’m not registered on that side….

  • Soleus

    I want a romantic comedy :(

  • disqus_A7XiMHCkke

    Ummm…. haven’t you see one during and after New York Fashion week? Leo as the leading man and upcoming actress / returning character Toni Garrn and rookie Lorena Rae as leading ladies. Ending is still undecided though.

  • disqus_A7XiMHCkke

    I agree. There’s nothing there but she won’t give up.
    I mean the video is old and I’m sure it was very thoroughly analyzed by Leo fans. lol

    tts that movie blew.

  • Galaxy Girl

    Since everyone was so open-minded in discussing the video I posted with a question. I’m gonna go on the conclusion that it’s true. No one discussed any of the images posted, and made note that they had already come to a quick conclusion earlier when discussed. Shutting someone down so fast is a tell-tale sign of truth covered up in lies. I know what I saw and anyone else who see’s it and is not delusionally in denial will be able to at least look at the images w/o a ‘discussion over attitude’ and ‘you’re a troll’.

    Salma Hayek thanks Leo

    It looks like that, but what is it exactly, there isn’t enough supporting footage, just from the back, so its still speculative. Unless you can find another shot from another angle. i click and stop and still nothing certain, unless the girl is only visible to him and out of photo range, because he gets a distraction from person on right getting his attention, to get him away from her, thats what it would be. is that what you get too.

    I really miss 2012-2014. Those years in his career were so exciting to be a Leo fan between Django Unchained, The Great Gatsby, and The Wolf of Wall Street. Those 3 roles are similar when compared together but they were so different and risky for Leo overall. And it felt like everyone loved him at the time.

    Based on Toni’s last ig story she won’t be at her foundation’s event this week.

  • Josie

    Well it’s just the Cologne Marathon, not a special event for her foundation.

  • disqus_A7XiMHCkke
