Leonardo DiCaprio eyes Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar Hoover biopic

Posted on

He’s already worked with Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg, so it was really just a matter of time until the Oscar-nominated actor joined forces with the legendary Clint Eastwood. DiCaprio himself confirmed to EW that he’s met with Eastwood on the project, which would follow Hoover’s tenure — and influence at — the FBI.

No deal is yet in place, but DiCaprio is clearly engaged. “It sounds interesting to say the least,” says DiCaprio. “There’s no contract, no anything, but I’m a huge fan of Clint’s.” Dustin Lance Black (Milk) wrote the script and Brian Grazer and his Imagine Entertainment are producing.
