Scott, DiCaprio Re-Team For “World”

Ridley Scott (“Blade Runner”) is set to direct while Leonardo DiCaprio is set to produce “Brave New World” for Universal Pictures says Risky Biz Blog.

Based on Aldous Huxley’s seminal novel, the story takes place in the 26th century in a world that has found harmony by controlling the birth rate. Five castes populate the world and everybody knows their place.

The main character in the story is Bernard. He is a member of a lower-caste. He is in love with Lenina. Things get complicated when “the leaders of the society find his behavior antisocial.”

Farhad Safinia (“Apocalypto”) is set to pen the screenplay.
