After some trying times (and by trying times I mean it got to the point I wanted to give up at some parts), the gallery is now back up and fully operating! I spent the last two weeks re-adding everything to a new gallery because our old one was filled with some errors that my host nor myself could fix. My next adventure is to adding all the new stuff that’s accumulated, including The Great Gatsby images and events. Make sure to visit our new Gallery!
Hello everyone, my name is Holly and I’m a good friend of Roberta’s. Recently she has decided to step down and offered me the chance to run this site, as a fan of Leo’s for a long time I was honored to take the site over. I know it’s been quite a while since a update and it’s going to take some time getting things organized and everything back to full speed on this site.
I am currently working on getting the gallery back up and that should be done within the next few days. We will also now be only at leonardodicapriofan.com! Thank you for being patient.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s a big star
Martin Scorsese has described his new movie The Wolf Of Wall Street as an exciting story.
The movie will be the fifth collaboration between the Oscar winning director and Leonardo DiCaprio, their first project together since Shutter Island.
Filming on the movie is yet to get underway but Scorsese is keen to get started.
Speaking to ET Online the filmmaker said: “We’re aiming to start later this summer. It’s such an exciting story.
“Even though it’s set in the early ’90s, the attitude is there. The actions are the same. Our values are the same.”
“It’s not like we had solid values until 1998
Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone and Shutter Island. As far as book-to-film adaptations go, Dennis Lehane is batting a perfect 3-for-3, and with Warner Bros. behind two of those pictures, they are looking to score another success by enlisting Leonardo DiCaprio.
The studio has snapped up the rights to Lehane’s “Live By Night” which is being developed as a vehicle for Shutter Island star DiCaprio. And… that’s about it. The book doesn’t hit shelves or Kindles (or whatever) until this fall, so a synopsis or logline is unavailable, but it’s probably safe to say it will be dark and gritty and, if done right, worthy of awards attention when that time rolls around. And as usual, it’s one of many, many, many projects that DiCaprio is eyeballing at any moment
Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson star in the director’s “Southern” about a slave who teams up with a bounty hunter to find his wife while tracking down a murderous pair of brothers.
Sony Pictures and the Weinstein Company released a synopsis Friday for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. The follow-up to Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds, the film tells the story of a slave in the antebellum South who agrees to help a bounty hunter track down a violent pair of fugitives in exchange for help in finding his long-lost wife.
According to the press release, the plot is as follows:
Set in the South two years before the Civil War, Django Unchained stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles
Kate Winslet says that she was nearly giddy when she found out that Leonardo DiCaprio would be her co-star in Titanic.
“When they finally gave me the role, I remember calling my friends and family and going, ‘You’re not going to believe who’s playing Jack, you’re not going to believe who’s playing the boy’s part
In a film that stars Leonardo DiCaprio it is an interesting move for the first promotional poster of Baz Lurhmann’s adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald literary classic to have Carey Mulligan be the selling point. It is her face that eclipses that of DiCaprio’s, whose adjacent profile is barely existent.
Set to be released on Christmas Day, Lurhmann will attempt to channel the dark allure that the other cinematic adaptations of The Great Gatsby have lacked. It’s definitely a challenge for Lurhmann; his combination of rich visuals and cinematography will surely go to waste outside of the lavish parties in WASPy settings.
DiCaprio plays Jay Gatsby, the new-money socialite known for throwing lavish parties that appall the old-money upper-class. Mulligan plays Daisy Buchanan, a slice of upper-class crust, who at one time had strong feelings for Gatsby. She has since gone on to marry Tom (Joel Edgarton), an unfaithful husband who has a mistress (Isla Fisher). Tobey Maguire plays the Midwest-born Nick Carraway, the witness (and the story’s narrator) to the events that transpire among the elite-status individuals.
Just a little over a year ago it was announced that director Martin Scorsese and actor Leonardo DiCaprio planned on teaming up for a fifth time in order to make a movie called The Wolf Of Wall Street. These guys always keep themselves busy though, and the script for the film was still being adapted from the memoirs of former day trader Jordan Belfort, so it wasn’t really clear when it would go in front of the camera, if ever.
Since then, the news has changed. According to Deadline Ruhr the duo haveveach committed to making this one their next project, and filming is scheduled to start this August. The Wolf Of Wall Street tells the story of Belfort’s career back during the decade of excess: the 80s. It’s a story full of drugs, women, illegal acts, and massive profits. The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire executive producer Terence Winter adapted the script, which is now finished, but is expected to undergo another polish before Scorsese and company start shooting.
The last couple months of cold weather have kind of slowed the momentum of the Occupy protests, but they’re likely to get back to full force soon enough, and then grow in momentum and media coverage as we get closer and closer to the next presidential election. So I don’t think it comes as any coincidence that Scorsese and DiCaprio have made this tale of Wall Street corruption a priority. As long as this miserable economic climate doesn’t clear up any time soon, they could really have a hit on their hands. I’ve got my fingers crossed for you guys!
