Set in Indiana in the mid-1980s, the movie centers on Slim (DiCaprio) trying to assimilate back into society after he’s released from jail.

DiCaprio and Scott just wrapped the geopolitical thriller “Body of Lies” for Warners due out later this year. DiCaprio has Martin Scorsese’s period thriller “Shutter Island” and Ridley Scott is prepping the Russell Crowe-led Robin Hood romance “Nottingham” for Universal.
