Scorsese and DiCaprio team up again

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Martin Scorsese is re-teaming with Leonardo DiCaprio once again in the film adaptation of Jordan Belfort's upcoming autobiography The Wolf of Wall Street for Warner Bros. Pictures.

No deals have been signed yet, but assuming things work out, DiCaprio would play Belfort, a Long Island penny stockbroker who served 20 months in prison for refusing to cooperate in a massive 1990s securities fraud case that involved widespread corruption on Wall Street and in the corporate banking world, including mob infiltration. Much of the film would hinge on Belfort's relationship with the FBI agent who tried to make him an informant.

The Wolf of Wall Street will be written by Terence Winter, but who knows (other than The Shadow) when it will be produced or released.
