Oscar-winner Jean Dujardin (“The Artist”) is in talks to join the Martin Scorsese-directed financial thriller “The Wolf of Wall Street” at Red Granite says The Hollywood Reporter.
An adaptation of Jordan Belfort’s novel, Leonardo DiCaprio plays a Long Island penny stock broker who served 20 months in prison for participating in a massive 1990’s securities fraud that involved widespread corruption on Wall Street.
Dujardin would play money-laundering Swiss banker Jean-Jacques Handali. Jonah Hill and Kyle Chandler also star.
DiCaprio, Scorsese, Riza Aziz, Joey McFarland, Emma Koskoff and Alexandra Milchan are producing with filming to begin in August in New York City.
