Leonardo DiCaprio is said to be seriously considering one of the lead roles in the western “The Creed of Violence” at Universal Pictures reports The Los Angeles Times.
An adaptation of Boston Teran’s 2010 novel, the story follows an outlaw who attempts to smuggle a cache of weapons into Mexico during that country’s revolution.
He is caught but then helped by a government agent whom he once knew. DiCaprio has been offered both roles but has yet to sign for either of them.
“Little Children” helmer Todd Field is attached to direct and a Christmas 2012 release is already planned.
