Leonardo DiCaprio to Star in The Gambler Remake

Leonardo DiCaprio to Become The Gambler For Martin Scorsese

Leonardo DiCaprio is about to roll the dice on a new project. DiCaprio will star in the remake of The Gambler, which will be directed by Martin Scorsese. DiCaprio will play the title character, Axel Freed, a man with a debilitating gambling addiction that propels his life into a dark place (James Caan originated the role in 1974). The Gambler remake will be something of a Departed reunion; not only are DiCaprio and Scorsese working together for the fifth time, but they'll reteam with screenwriter William Monahan (who won an Oscar for the 2004 drama).

Scorsese and DiCaprio must really love each other! Fifth time they are working together! Must say, this film doesn't sound THAT exciting...
