Daniel Espinosa ("Safe House," "Child 44") has signed on to direct the thriller "Blood on Snow" at Warner Bros. Pictures.
Leonardo DiCaprio is attached to star in and produce the adaptation of the novel by Jo Nesbo ("Headhunters"). DiCaprio would play a hitman who is hired to kill the wife of his boss, but he falls in love with her, causing them to both go on the run from the mob together.
No screenwriter is currently attached to the work, but the book is the first of a planned trilogy so the story has franchise potential. Jennifer Davisson Killoran will also produce.
