Leonardo DiCaprio and Mel Gibson to Make Movie About Vikings 2009-12-14 09:30:47

Leonardo DiCaprio and Mel Gibson to Go Viking

Leonardo DiCaprio and Mel Gibson are teaming up and going back in time for a period piece about Vikings. Not much is known about the project as of yet (including the title), but Gibson is slated to direct while DiCaprio will be the one slipping on the horns. William Monahan, whose credits include The Departed and Body of Lies, will pen the script — obviously he knows a thing or two about writing for DiCaprio.

The film is already being compared to Braveheart, and it certainly sounds like the kind of epic drama that DiCaprio loves to sink his teeth into. Plus, we all know that he's totally still lusting after an Oscar. Are you ready to see DiCaprio head into Viking battle?

I somehow doubt this will be what he will win an oscar for. Maybe next year with Shutter Island or Inception, but not likely for a viking. That said I would love to see Leo shirtless or relatively shirtless in a viking costume for 3 hours. Is that sooo wrong? :opps:

i'm blah about the movie, but i'm all for Leo finally winning an oscar. he is such a fantastic actor and always gives 110% to all his roles. he deserves it!

I love Leo in general, but it's a pity Mel Gibson is directing. Boycott.

i definitely think he deserves an oscar before he retires the acting world. i'm not sure if a viking movie will reel me in to the theaters though.
