Leonardo DiCaprio to Produce and Potentially Star in King Harald


Leonardo DiCaprio is set to produce and potentially star in King Harald, a historical biopic about Harald Hardrada, the 11th century Viking king. Deadline reports that Warner Bros. has snagged a screenplay from Mark L. Smith (Vacancy, The Hole) that DiCaprio’s Appian Way will develop.

DiCaprio, who recently appeared in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained and Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, will soon re-team with director Martin Scorsese for The Wolf of Wall Street.

King Harald isn’t the only historical biopic that DiCaprio is said to be eyeing. Appian Way is, according to recent reports, also developing the story of the “Mad Monk”Rasputin.
