Leonardo DiCaprio Returns to Dennis Lahaine with ‘Live By Night’

Leonardo DiCaprio in 'Inception'
Warner Brothers

So, you’re Warner Brothers, and you want to keep working with Leonardo DiCaprio, but how do you get him to stick around? Even though your last picture together – Clint Eastwood‘s ‘J. Edgar’ – wasn’t exactly a hit, Leo’s still one of the biggest names in the world. He did star in ‘Titanic‘ and ‘Inception.’ So, to keep him happy, Warner Brothers bought him a book (how sweet!): Dennis Lahaine’s ‘Live By Night.’

This was reported by Deadline, which notes that book is due out this fall and that it’s the second in a trilogy. So – if it works – there’s room for a franchise of sorts. DiCaprio would also be producing the film, though he’s got a full plate these days so this probably wouldn’t see the light of day until 2014 at the earliest.

Dennis Lahaine has a great track record cinematically. He’s had three books adapted: Clint Eastwood’s ‘Mystic River,’ Ben Affleck’s ‘Gone Baby Gone’ and Martin Scorsese’s ‘Shutter Island.’ So, if this happens, it would make it DiCaprio’s second Lahaine film. On top of those bona fides, Lahaine wrote three episodes of ‘The Wire,’ which was recently hailed as the greatest TV show of all time by Vulture. Not that we would argue.
