Leonardo DiCaprio has shown a great deal of range since we first spotted him on “Growing Pains” in the early ’90s. He’s drawn naked French girls, ruled the roaring ’20s in “The Great Gatsby,” incepted our dreams, and danced like this in “The Wolf of Wall Street.” Is his next stop the 11th century?

Warner Bros. is currently developing “King Harald,” with a script from “Vacancy” writer Mark L. Smith. It’s the tale of Harald Hardrada, aka Harald Sigurdsson, the former king of Norway and all-around tough customer. DiCaprio’s already on board to produce, under his Appian Way umbrella with Jennifer Davisson Killoran, and Deadline reports the project is being developed with him in mind to star.

According to the site, DiCaprio is “a history buff” who’s been yearning to don his very own horned Viking helmet for a movie. If that’s the case, Harald’s the perfect choice: The man known as Harald the Ruthless fought in Russia, Sicily, and Bulgaria; tried to take over England and Denmark; and even beefed with the Pope.

Harald’s adventures should make for an interesting “‘Braveheart’-style” epic, and it would be cool to see DiCaprio get his hands dirty.

Leonardo has always been up for saving the environment and the animals and he supports yet another proposal to save marine life in the Antarctic waters.

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio has expressed his support behind the joint New Zealand-U.S. proposal to apply fishing restrictions in some areas of Antarctic waters. Despite the joint efforts, Ukraine and Russia have blocked the proposal, raising fears that the plan could be shot down.

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio has expressed his support behind the joint New Zealand-U.S. proposal to apply fishing restrictions in some areas of Antarctic waters. Despite the joint efforts, Ukraine and Russia have blocked the proposal, raising fears that the plan could be shot down.

Mr Lobach insisted in the meeting that legal experts had assured the commission of the legality of its power to designate a marine reserve.

Under the New Zealand-U.S. proposal, spawning areas of Antarctic toothfish, juvenile habitats and other habitats of particular importance which are often the target of valuable fishery will be declared as marine protected areas.

The proposal for the East Antarctica marine protected area was submitted by France, Australia and the European Union is also being evaluated in the meeting with the commission.

Even before Thursday night’s meeting, Leonardo DiCaprio had urged Russia to support the proposed Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) according to an article published in Russian newspaper, Rossiyskaya Gazeta. Mr DiCaprio wrote the article in reaction to Russia’s previous attempt to block plans of making the Ross Sea in Antarctica an MPA.

Other celebrities and international personalities have also expressed their support for the NZ-U.S. proposal include businessman Sir Richard Branson and world-renowned film director James Cameron who also worked with Mr DiCaprio in the blockbuster hit Titanic. They urged Russia in an open letter to support the proposal since it has an important role to play in Antarctica’s future.

Leo and co-star Jamie Foxx are teaming up again after Django Unchained in a new project!

Reunited and it feels so mean. Fans of Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” should be pleased to find out that Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio will hit the big screen together again, in what sounds like a very different project.

“Mean Business on North Ganson Street” follows two police officers who team up to solve a string of attacks against the police department in a Missouri town. When the two detectives become targets, they take on the criminals for themselves, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The story is based on the upcoming crime novel by S. Craig Zahler, who will also pen the script. While a director has not been announced, DiCaprio will also produce the film along with his Appian Way production partner Jennifer Davisson Killoran.

Baz Luhrmann’s lavish cinematic version of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan appears to have an August 27 release date for Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD according to new pre-order listings at online retailer Amazon.com.
The Great Gatsby was made for around $105 million and has gone on to earn $141.6 million domestically and $301.9 worldwide. It was released theatrically on May 10 so the late August release date just ahead of Labor Day weekend seems like the perfect spot to drop it.

More information regarding the Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray combo pack release of The Great Gatsby will be added when Warner Bros. makes their official home video announcement.

Leonardo DiCaprio has apparently decided against moving from his Hollywood Hills mansion because he doesn’t want to risk damaging a valuable dinosaur skeleton he had installed at the property.

It’s been claimed that the The Great Gatsby star was considering putting his $13 million pad on the market after relations between his neighbours became tense following the Hollywood star’s apparent penchant for late partying.

“He’s had some huge parties at his house and he was thinking of selling it after things got a bit tense with his neighbours over his all-night basketball games,” an insider told National Enquirer.

The 38-year-old is reported to have backtracked on the move after finding out the prized artefact was worth more than the property and has instead, according to the magazine, vowed to calm down his partying ways in an attempt to smooth things over with his neighbours
