DiCaprio Up For Vigilante Thriller “Prisoners”

Leonardo DiCaprio is apparently keen on starring in “Prisoners” for Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures says Deadline Hollywood.

Aaron Guzikowski’s Black List script centers on a small-town carpenter whose young daughter and best friend are kidnapped. After the cops fail to find them, the man turns vigilante and starts an investigation of his own.

Directors like Antoine Fuqua and Bryan Singer, and actors like Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman and Mark Wahlberg have all been circling or attached at one point in the past few years. All have since dropped out for various reasons.

DiCaprio’s involvement will depend on who is directing and his schedule, whatever the case it’s certainly not his next project. Andrew Kosove, Broderick Johnson, Kira Davis and Adam Kolbrenner will produce.
