The dynamic duo is back at it again! Leonardo DiCaprio and director Martin Scorsese are teaming up again for a Teddy Roosevelt biopic at Paramount, confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter. The drama, titled Roosevelt, will be about the dormer U.S. president with a script written by Scott Bloom.
Roosevelt led an eventful life filled with military exploits, and a political track where he moved from New York Governor to vice president to become at 42 the youngest president after William McKinley's assassination in 1901. He also pushed his "Square Deal" to domestic policies and began construction on the Panama Canal. All of this is sure to make an interesting film! Roosevelt's most enduring achievements came in the area of environmental conservation, including his work around reserves, preserves, national parks, and forests.
Scorsese and DiCaprio have worked together multiple times before with Gangs of New York, The Aviator, Shutter Island, The Departed and The Wolf Of Wall Street, and they developing The Devil In The White City and Killers of The Flower Moon to do together, both based on critically acclaimed books!
DiCaprio makes a handsome Teddy Roosevelt! We can't wait to see how this film will play out.
