Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese must have really had some good times on the set of The Departed. Having found Oscar success thanks to the help of the actor, Scorsese is willing to give DiCaprio another go.

Scorsese, DiCaprio for The Wolf of Wall Street

Martin Scorsese is hoping to direct Leonardo DiCaptrio in the film adaptation of Jordan Belfort's tell-all autobiography The Wolf of Wall Street. Set up at Warner Bros, the book has yet to be released. That is not stopping Scorsese or Terence Winter, however, who is already on board to write the script.

Warner Bros. only acquired the project last Friday, after they won an aggressive bidding war between them and Paramount Pictures.

Literary agent Joel Gotler, who handled the film rights to Belfort's book, preferred Warner Bros. thanks to the Scorsese-DiCaprio combo.

If DiCaprio were to star, the actor would play Belfort, a Long Island penny stockbroker who served 20 months in prison for refusing to cooperate in a massive 1990s securities fraud case that involved widespread corruption on Wall Street and in the corporate banking world, including mob infiltration.

DiCaprio's next project on his to-do list is Revolutionary Road, a film that will reunite him with Titanic co-star Kate Winslet.

Stay tuned for updates.
