Gibson, DiCaprio Team For Viking Epic

Mel Gibson will direct and Leonardo DiCaprio will star in a Viking culture-themed untitled period drama for GK Films and Icon Films reports Variety.

“Kingdom of Heaven” and “The Departed” scribe William Monahan pens the script though plot details are being kept under wraps. The project will mark Gibson’s next directorial effort, but DiCaprio is expected to squeeze in a film before this one.

Gibson, Tim Headington and Graham King will produce. Filming kicks off next Fall.
