Current Movie Projects Leonardo DiCaprio is Working On - Associated Content

The year 2010 saw Leonardo DiCaprio adding two more great movies to the list of successful productions that he has starred in.

The first, Shutter Island, a gripping thriller, saw Leonardo DiCaprio playing the part of a U.S. Marshall on the trail of a murderess who escaped from a hospital for the criminally

insane.

The second, Inception, which had some amazing special effects, saw Leonardo DiCaprio playing a thief employed to steal secrets from the subconscious mind of people in a dream state.

Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't have any movies due for release in 2011, but for 2012 he does play the lead in what could become a classic drama movie, J.Edgar.

J. Edgar tells the story of FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, a highly controversial figure, whose career was full of scandals. In addition, history has shown that he was a homosexual, and there are rumors that he was a cross dresser.

J. Edgar, is currently in pre-production, will star Leonardo DiCaprio, Charlize Theron and Armie Hammer, and directed by Clint Eastwood.

Interestingly enough, some sources, including The Wrap list this movie as being titled "Hoover" rather than J. Edgar. I guess we will have to wait and see what the final title is when the movie is released.

Not yet in production is another thriller, The Devil In The White City, based on the 2003 book by Erik Larson, and scheduled for release in 2013. Leonardo DiCaprio is set to play Dr. Henry Howard Holmes, who was a 19th century serial killer.

The Devil In The White City will be produced by Appian Way and Double Feature Films, who have recently acquired the film rights to the book. As yet no director or other cast members have been announced.

The Playlist shows that amongst other upcoming projects that Leonardo DiCaprio may be involved in, are a remake of The Great Gatsby, and The Legacy Of Secrecy, which is about the assassination of JFK.

I think that fans of Leonardo DiCaprio, dramas and thrillers can rest assured that he has some more great movies in the pipeline.

Movie review: ‘Phillip Morris’ a messy but funny con game - Salt Lake Tribune

Posted: 23 Dec 2010 06:55 PM PST

One thing you have to say about Jim Carrey: He's not one for half-measures. If Carrey is cast to play a gay Texas con man, he's going to play him extra gay with a side of gay. Carrey plays Steven Russell, a small-town cop who becomes a major con artist — and when he lands in jail and falls for a young gay inmate, Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor), Russell figures out how to game the system and get himself and Morris out of prison and living the good life. Writers and first-time directors John Requa and Glenn Ficarra provide the sort of scathingly grown-up comedy you might expect from the guys who wrote "Bad Santa," and they neatly channel Carrey's comic gifts to fit this inventive true-life character. Alas, the messy reality of Russell's character makes for a messy narrative, and Requa and Ficarra don't always navigate the plot's sharp curves smoothly.
