Gibson To Direct DiCaprio in Viking Adventure

Gibson To Direct DiCaprio in Viking Adventure

Mel Gibson may direct Leonardo DiCaprio in a Viking adventure, reports Variety. The Departed scripter William Monahan will write for producer Graham King. I like this combo. Gibson will get down and dirty with this, as he did with The Passion of the Christ and Apocalypto. He’s a gifted director.

DiCaprio will likely take a film before putting on the Viking horns. He just completed the Christopher Nolan-directed “Inception” for Warner Bros., and will next be seen in the Martin Scorsese-directed “Shutter Island,” which Paramount releases February 19. Gibson just completed the Jodie Foster-directed “The Beaver.”
