Leonardo DiCaprio and director Martin Scorsese are teaming up to produce what is sure to be another blockbuster.
The two are reportedly working to create “Roosevelt,” a drama that chronicles the life of the 26th President of the United States.

Scott Bloom will write the screenplay and DiCaprio and Jennifer Davidsson will produce it.
Leo and Scorsese have worked together on countless other movies, including “Shutter Island,” “The Departed,” “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” and “Gangs Of New York.”
Though the two haven’t officially announced what part of Roosevelt’s life they’ll cover, there’s plenty to chronicle. Roosevelt overcame nearly debilitating asthma as a child and went on to attend Harvard. He served as Governor of New York, Secretary of the Navy, and Vice President of the United States before going on to serve two terms as POTUS.
He was also an avid naturalist and conservationist, which is likely why Leo is drawn to him.
There’s no official trailer out yet for the movie but I think we can all bet that this will be one worth watching.
