Warner Bros. is bringing to the screen the upcoming Dennis Lehane prohibition-era novel Live By Night. Deadline has word that the project already has Leonardo Dicaprio lined up to star.
Set for release this fall, the crime novel is the second book in a trilogy that begins with Lehane’s 2008 book The Given Day.
DiCaprio, who will also produce Night, recently starred in Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar and can be seen later this year in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained and Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, both of which are slated to hit on Christmas day.
