Leonardo DiCaprio is looking to produce and potentially star in an adaptation of crime fiction author Joe Nesbo’s upcoming novel, Blood on Snow, Deadline reports. Warner Bros. is negotiating the rights to the tome for DiCaprio’s Appian Way.
Blood on Snow marks the first book written by Nesbo under his new nom de plume, Tom Johansen. It follows a hitman who is tasked with offing his boss’ wife only to find that he’s fallen in love with her. Two literary sequels are already planned and, in the third, Johansen himself becomes a character.
In addition to DiCaprio, Appian Way’s Jennifer Davisson Killoran will produce alongside Kevin McCormick of Langley Park.
