I gotta admit, the idea of seeing Leonardo DiCaprio swinging around a Viking broadsword while Mel Gibson directs is pretty tempting, and the duo certainly seemed enthuse about making a film that both seemed very excited about when the project was announced last year. Of course, this is Hollywood, where one’s excitement is short-lived from project to project. Take Gibson’s Viking movie, which according to RadarOnline might now be in jeopardy now that DiCaprio has supposedly pulled out.
The site quotes unnamed sources as saying there is “not a chance” that DiCaprio will still star in Gibson’s movie in the aftermath of the writer/director’s current, er, issues with his current ex-wife.
Of course, this is Hollywood we’re talking about, where a man who drugs and sodomizes an underage girl still gets plenty of support from the acting community at large, so I doubt if Gibson’s movie will be delayed for very long, with or without DiCaprio onboard.
