Looks like Scorsese and DiCaprio will team up again (for their fourth film together) when they are done with The Departed.

These guys obviously like each other and work well together.

Quote:
Director Martin Scorsese and actor Leonardo DiCaprio will team up again for a Paramount Pictures film about U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt.
The film based on Edmund Morris' Pulitzer Prize-winning book, "The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt," will focus on the formative years of the 26th president, as he reinvented himself from a slight and privileged New York politician with a Harvard degree to the burly commander of the Rough Riders, Daily Variety reported Monday.
DiCaprio and Scorsese are currently working on their third film together, "The Departed," the Warner Bros. remake of the Hong Kong crime drama "Infernal Affairs." The duo previously teamed for "Gangs of New York" and "The Aviator."

Personally, I am very much looking forward to both of these movies.

That's good news, Scorsese seems to be still hungry as a filmmaker.

I'm looking forward to both as well.

DiCaprio isn't a bad actor and has come a long way, but he just looks too damn young. I liked The Aviator alot, but an actor who actually looks like a man would have made the film even better. Dicaprio just isn't macho enough for these roles.

I almost read "Scorcese's downfall". Posted Image Is it just me or their movies together look just like movies! I mean they all look like obvious sets, made up cloths and people acting in new cloths and sets. Nothing looks real.

I hope Scorsese finds his balls... he's been missing them for the last 10 years.

Rumor has it that CGI will be used to keep DiCaprio from falling over under the weight of his big stick.

Since it was released in 1995, I assume you would consider "Casino" to be Scorsese's last movie with "balls". I'll take a great movie without balls like "The Aviator" over "Casino", which is undoubtedly one of his lesser works, but then again I actually like the Scorsese movies like "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore" in addition to stuff like "Taxi Driver". I don't care if his movies don't have "balls" as long as they're good.

'Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore' is a movie with balls!

'Casino' is his last good movie. His lesser movies are 'The Aviator' and 'Gangs of New York', which indeed look like obvious sets, made up cloths and people acting in new cloths and sets (very well put, Sam). They remind me of 'Titanic' and clearly indicate that it's Scorsese's wish to be embraced by Hollywood.

Would you just like to laugh in the face of every jerkoff who was spouting off about those rumors during GONY that Leo was out partying and pissing Marty off and how it Leo was going to ruin the film.

I don't get Leo haters, he's a strong actor and always has been. He's doing some of the best work among younger actors out there. I think he will end up with an Oscar or two before he's done.

That is going to be a monster hit I think. IA is a killer film and premise and yet you could really see where Scorsese could amp it up even higher (it was a little Jerry Bruckheimer in its original form) and where Leo would shine in either younger role (agent or mole).

Early predictions, which film and director will rob Scorsese this year? I abosotetly love their work together, and each time they are passed up - I just hope they can continue to make A+ work and finally when that dang Emmy award.

DiCaprio is beefing up for the role of Teddy Roosevelt, apparently, from this photo I saw in "People Magazine"

It's funny all of the pre-Departed comments about how Scorsese hasn't had balls in years. I would have agreed with them! The Departed goes down as the only Scorsese film I've seen year of release that I've actually enjoyed.

Is this film a go? Man, I hope so. With tremendous talent behind the camera, the best young leading man in Hollywood (and the relationship the two share), combined with the material (Teddy R!)...this should be a piece of work.
Hey buddy...did you just see a real bright light?

That picture is for Sam Mendes' "Revolutionary Road," also starring Kate Winslet. More pics are at Oscarwatch.com. People Magazine is hilarious when it comes to fact-checking. I myself posted erroneous photos of theirs a couple months ago, (for Paul Thomas Anderson's new movie with Daniel Day Lewis) only to find out they had photographed a Day-Lewis lookalike actor and said it was him. The Roosevelt project is in the air right now. Scorsese's name has been attached to a billion things since the oscar. People are assuming that the 17th Century Missionaries in Japan project is his next, but even that's not set in stone.

At first, I wasn't so sure about Leo playing Frank Wheeler in RR, but that picture's changed my mind. I'm looking forward to that film big time, especially given Mendes's talent, too.

The thing is, he wasn't even a lookalike, he looked nothing like DDL and People made a big deal about the recognizability by explaining it away as a supposed makeup transformation!
