Leonardo DiCaprio Taking No ‘Prisoners’

The hype started last March when the Hollywood Reporter dubbed Aaron Guzikowski’s screenplay, Prisoners as “One of the hottest scripts in town.” Now, after losing a string of mega-stars (Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman), along with directors Bryan Singer and Antoine Fuqua, the project is limping along. Deadline reports that Shutter Island star Leonardo DiCaprio could revive the pic, but his involvement depends on who gets behind the camera (they note that since 2002, he has made 4 films with Martin Scorsese and the only other directors he’s worked with have been Chris Nolan, Ridley Scott, Sam Mendes, and Ed Zwick). Prisoners has a Mystic River-meets-Taken storyline, and DiCaprio wants to play a small-town carpenter who takes matters into his own hands when his daughter and her friend are kidnapped. Warner Bros will distribute. DiCaprio will likely make another movie before taking Prisoners.
