Schwentke Heads Up Enron Conspiracy

Robert Schwentke (“Flightplan,” “The Time Traveler’s Wife”) is set to direct the Enron scandal drama “Conspiracy of Fools” for Warner Bros. Pictures and Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way productions reports Variety.

Based on the Kurt Eichenwald book and adapted by Sheldon Turner, the drama revolves around a tax attorney who joins the Houston-based energy company and peels back the layers of greed and fraudulent accounting to expose a financial scheme.

DiCaprio had been attached to star but it is unclear whether his busy schedule will still allow it.
