DiCaprio to Star in Gibson’s Next

Perhaps he’ll actually play the king of the world this time? Leonardo DiCaprio is set to star in Mel Gibson’s next film, an untitled project about the Vikings. DiCaprio, Variety reports, has “long been fascinated by Viking culture,” while the subject figures to settle nicely into Gibson’s oeuvre of incredibly violent historical films. William Monahan, who wrote The Departed, will be penning the new film.
