He’s now made a deal to adapt the upcoming novel The Road Home for Warner Bros.
Deadline say that the film is intended as a vehicle for Leonardo DiCaprio. He would play:
a war-scarred rancher on the Central California coast who finds himself entangled in scandal when he is asked to investigate the brutal murder of a local man, a case that local police have swept under the rug.
Interestingly, Out of the Furnace was an old Leo project that once had Ridley Scott attached to direct. Small world.
