Mel Gibson will direct Leonardo DiCaprio for the very first time in an untitled drama set in the world of viking culture. "The Departed's" William Monahan is writing the script.
Shooting is expected to begin fall of 2010 and could be Gibson's next directing gig. Graham King's GK Films and Gibson's Icon Productions are co-producing.
Daily Variety tells us that:
The principals confirmed the project but would not divulge many details. DiCaprio, who has long been fascinated by Viking culture, will play one in a storyline that will be as unsparing as Gibson’s other period directing efforts “Braveheart,” “The Passion of the Christ” and “Apocalypto.”
Mel Gibson directing a period drama with Leonardo DiCaprio? I'm so there!
