After Titanic, Leo Looks to the Sinking Ship of Enron

There's a reason that Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room is one of the most outstanding documentaries I've ever seen: Frankly, the bizarre, sordid tale just begs to be made into a movie. With reclusive, stripper-obsessed executives and convoluted concepts like "hypothetical future value," the story is so unbelievable it almost sounds like fiction.

That juicy potential wasn't lost on Warner Bros., which on Tuesday made a preemptive deal for an Enron movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio and produced by the actor's Appian Way company. The film will be based on Kurt Eichenwald's book Conspiracy of Fools, which chronicles the company's tragic rise and fall. For the details on the movie and Leo's role,

According to Variety:

In "Conspiracy of Fools," DiCaprio will play a newcomer to the Houston-based energy company who slowly peels back the layers to expose the campaign of greed and fraudulent accounting that drove Enron into bankruptcy in 2001."

That makes me happy, because when I first read that DiCaprio was starring in this ready-made thriller, that's just the part I thought he'd be best for. Plus, I've really developed a renewed respect for him ever since The Departed, which — coincidentally — was also a WB film. I can't wait to see who ends up directing the movie. What do you guys think about the project?
