Leonardo DiCaprio Moves To The Crowded Room

13 hours ago

Not everyone is in a position to pursue a project across 20 years in their career, but Leonardo DiCaprio is taking full advantage of his ability to do just that. Like a dog that will not stop chasing a speeding car, he’s inching closer to a film he’s wanted to work on for many moons, making a deal with New Regency for The Crowded Room. It’s based on Daniel Keyes’ 1981 non-fiction book about Billy Milligan, who became the first person in Us court history to successfully argue a defence of multiple personalities, alleging that one of the 24 other distinct personas in his head committed robbery and the rape of three women, and that he was unaware of the crimes. New Regency has had the book’s rights for years now, and DiCaprio first became interested back in 1997.

Update: Mark Ruffalo got in on the action by Tweeting out the Hulk's character poster. And here's Samuel L. Jackson, who delivered Black Widow and Thor.

But the Christmastime trip is soured somewhat when he meets her boyfriend, an ambitious Internet billionaire (probably think Sean Parker more than Mark Zuckerberg) – the role Franco is up for – and immediately takes a disliking to him.Thus kicks off a battle for his daughter’s attention as the dad tries to compete with this charismatic new rival. Hamburg, who most recently made TV movie Good Session, is »
