Variety

Leonardo DiCaprio is in negotiations to star in Fox Searchlight’s “Nightmare Alley,” Guillermo del Toro’s follow-up to his Oscar-winning film “The Shape of Water.”

Del Toro will direct the pic and co-wrote the script with Kim Morgan. “Nightmare Alley” is being produced and financed by del Toro and J. Miles Dale with TSG Entertainment, with Fox Searchlight acquiring worldwide distribution rights to the film.

While there is a 1947 Fox pic, this film will be more based on the William Lindsay Gresham novel of the same name. The 1947 movie starred Tyrone Power as an ambitious young con-man who teams up with a female psychiatrist who is even more corrupt than he is. At first, they enjoy success fleecing people with their mentalist act, but then she turns the tables on him, out-manipulating the manipulator.

The film shoots this fall as del Toro fills out the remaining roles.

After “The Shape of Water” went on to win several Oscars, including best picture and director for del Toro, the auteur decided to hold off on picking his next directing gig, only focusing his efforts as a producer on the Searchlight movie “Antlers.”

DiCaprio has not been seen in a movie since his Oscar-winning performance in “The Revenant” in 2015, choosing to take some time off before signing on to star in Quentin Tarantino’s next film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” That pic, which also toplines Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, and centers on the Manson family murders, bows on July 26.

He is repped by LBI Entertainment.

This was a very good week for all of us!! The trailer and new posters of Leo’s upcoming movie were released.

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, the footage features a montage of Tinseltown in the late 1960s. The duo play Rick Dalton and Cliff Booth, a washed-up actor and his long-time stunt double.

Actors are required to do a lot of dangerous stuff,DiCaprio’s character trailer explains in the trailer. “Cliff, here, is meant to help carry the load.

Pitt’s Cliff Booth seconds that notion. “What, carrying his load? Yeah, that’s about right.”

Tarantino, who wrote the script and will also direct and produce the movie, was inspired by his own upbringing in the midst of LA’s hippie-crazed counterculture. “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is set in 1969 Hollywood, a year that saw the rise of Charles Manson’s cult. Rick Dalton and Cliff Booth live next door to Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie), the pregnant actress killed in the Manson murders who catapulted the story into Hollywood news.

We have finally the first look of Leonardo DiCaprio in his upcoming movie “Once Upon a Time . . . in Hollywood“. Check bellow:

 

Vanity Fair

Quentin Tarantino was six years old and living in the Los Angeles area when, in the summer of 1969, hell broke loose. You know this story: five people murdered over the course of two days that August, shot and stabbed by a clan of hippie impressionables in anticipation of Helter Skelter, Charles Manson’s idea of holy terror. It’s a Hollywood tale—not least because its most famous victim, the pregnant actress Sharon Tate, was the wife of director Roman Polanski, which put the terror square in the back lot’s backyard.

But it’s a Hollywood story for bigger reasons. This was an era, not merely an event; a lifestyle, a people, a widespread obsession—not merely a spot on a timeline or map. The city is a sprawl. So was 1969. And so is the work of Quentin Tarantino, whose last three movies were violent but (mass Nazi execution notwithstanding) playful excursions into history, all of them riffs on the deviant style and rough talkiness of the Westerns Tarantino loves, even the Dirty Dozen-esque World War II picture Inglourious Basterds, in which a motley troop of American badasses, a mock-Tennessean Brad Pitt at its helm, takes its grievances out on Nazi skulls.

Now he’s back with a Western of a different stripe: an old-school L.A. story à la Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown, the kind of city epic only a nostalgic of Tarantino’s wit and peculiarity could attempt to really do justice. Once Upon a Time . . . in Hollywood, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a faded TV Western star and Pitt as his stunt double, is, as its sand-battered title suggests, a throwback. For Los Angeles, sure, but also for Tarantino, who, after traveling as far and wide as the Third Reich and the Shaolin Temple, is bringing it home.

Once Upon a Time . . . in Hollywood will be released July 26.

Leonardo DiCaprio is used to keeping his face shrouded in secrecy, but that won’t fly with the TSA, who forced the star to show them the goods during a security check.

The “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” star was taking a late-night flight out of JFK in New York with girlfriend Camila Morrone, his friend Vincent Laresca and was uncharacteristically flying commercial.

DiCaprio has taken heat in the past for his outspoken views on the environment while traveling around the world in a private jet, so it’s possible he was trying to be a man of the people.

Unfortunately, being a man of the people subjects you to the regular security checks, and DiCaprio was forced to lift up his trademark ball cap to prove to the TSA screener that he really is THAT Leo DiCaprio.

You can’t blame the TSA employee for keeping the actor a bit longer, ya gotta do something to stay entertained during a government shutdown.

The story behind the making of the new Netflix documentary Struggle, which tells the tale of a talented but obscure Polish artist named Stanislaw Szukalski, is nearly as strange as the plot of the film itself.

For one thing, it was produced by Leonardo DiCaprio and his father, George DiCaprio, who was friends with Szukalski and a group of artists that included R. Crumb, Robert Williams. and comic collector Glenn Bray

It was Bray who first became fascinated by Szukalski’s work when, in 1971, he came across one of the artist’s books. He was struck by the imagery, and astounded to learn that not only was the artist still alive, but he was living just a few miles away in Burbank, California. Bray befriended the artist and began recording his rambling musings about his life history and his bizarre personal mythologies, including “Zermatism,” his belief that people are under the control of a race of human-yeti hybrids.

George DiCaprio appears throughout the film in interviews while the only reference to Leonardo is a picture of him as a child with Szukalski and holding a note written to the boy advising him not to grow up too fast.

The film, which begins steaming on Netflix on December 21, shines a light on Szukalski’s colorful life and the hardships he endured during World War II. Born in Poland in 1893, he moved back and forth between Chicago and his native Poland as a young artist on the rise. By 1934, Poland had declared him the country’s greatest living artist and the Szukalski National Museum in Warsaw was home to most of his intricate paintings and massive sculptures, notable for their dramatic mythological imagery.

However, when the Nazis invaded Poland in 1939, the museum and most of Szukalski’s life’s work was destroyed. He fled to the US and settled in Los Angeles, took odd jobs, and continued to write and work, while slipping into near total obscurity. Until, that is, Bray discovered him.

By the end of the artist’s life, Bray had become a close friend and, by that time, perhaps his only one. (Szukalski’s wife died in 1980.) Bray collaborated on and published several books with Szukalski in addition to the beta recordings, all the while certain that his life and work was a story that needed to be shared with a broader audience.

Bray was also left in charge of Szukalski’s estate and archives when the artist died in 1987. He currently works with a foundry in Hollywood that produces editions of the artist’s work in bronze, since only plasters remained in Los Angeles.

“The timing of this project couldn’t have been better,” Bray told artnet News. “If you go back eight years ago, Netflix was still mailing red envelopes. They weren’t funding movies and they weren’t streaming. I’m so lucky that everything fell into place and that I happened to know George DiCaprio when I was young.”

A major stumbling block, one that is addressed in the documentary and will likely cause further debate, came at the end of filming when the crew happened upon some of Szukalski’s 1930s texts in Polish that suggest he held nationalistic, anti-Semitic views. In the film, George expresses regret about his friendship with the artist and spoke of being “blindsided,” but Bray is convinced that Szukalski was just caught up in the nationalist fervor sweeping Europe at the time, and that his ideologies changed over time.

Szukalski himself recounts a story from the time his star was on the rise of attracting the notice of a high-ranking Nazi official who asked whether he would be interested in making art for the German government. Needless to say, the drawing he says he submitted depicting Hitler in a tutu was promptly rejected and no further requests were forthcoming.

The famed director is honored at the Museum of Modern Art Film Benefit. DiCaprio, who’s appeared in five Scorsese films including “Shutter Island,” ”The Departed,” and “The Wolf of Wall Street,” also went back to his youth to describe the influence Scorsese, 76, had on him.

He told the audience how when he was just 15, and starting his journey as an actor, his father took him to a movie theater for inspiration.

He pointed at the screen, and as the reels of ‘Goodfellas’ began to spin, he said, ‘This is the epitome of modern filmmaking,’DiCaprio recounted. “‘This is someone who you may be lucky enough one day to work with, and when it comes to directors, Martin Scorsese is where the bar is set.‘”

The actor added that from that moment, “I made it a goal, I made it a relentless ambition to work alongside the master we’re celebrating here tonight.” The pair is about to start on its sixth collaboration, the crime thriller “Killers of the Flower Moon.

DiCaprio also spoke of Scorsese as a lifelong teacher, from his constant on-set references to film history to his efforts to restore and preserve old films with The Film Foundation, which he founded in 1990.

No one on earth has so relentlessly pioneered the salvation of movie history with such commitment the way Martin Scorsese has,DiCaprio said.

Brad Pit and Leonardo DiCaprio definitely look the part in Quentin Tarantino’s new ’60s-set movie.

The actors are starring in Once Upon a Time In Hollywood, Tarantino’s highly-anticipated ninth film that centers on the two as they navigate Hollywood in the groovy era. Pitt and DiCaprio have been spotted shooting with Tarantino all over Los Angeles since mid-summer and have recently been joined by costars.

They were most recently seen shooting with Margaret Qualley and Margot Robbie, who plays Sharon Tate. They’ve also been spotted with Lena Dunham; the cast also includes Dakota Fanning and Emile Hirsch.

This time around, the two were solo and showed off their late ’60s looks. Pitt was in an all-white denim get up with a black shirt underneath, while DiCaprio went for pastels with salmon-colored pants and a similarly toned striped shirt.

TreePeople honored DiCaprio, mother of actor Leonardo DiCaprio, with the Evergreen Award for her work bettering the environment. The organization’s founder, Andy Lipkis, expressed his disappointment at the Senate decision as well, while presenting DiCaprio with her award.

“It’s hard right now,” Lipkis said. “We had a chance to save people, and we didn’t.”

While accepting the honor, DiCaprio detailed the origins of her family’s passion for the environment and the beginnings of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, which she and her son established in 1998.

“I moved to Los Angeles and made it a point to live right at the edge of Griffith Park because the image of the forest in Germany was always in me,” DiCaprio said.

“This is where Leonardo was born — right there, within walking distance of the greatest city park in the world, and luckily, a short distance to the Hollywood movie studios. Even as a young child, Leonardo was always fascinated with nature and animals.”
