Leonardo DiCaprio Project Tops Annual Black List
Every year, Hollywood insiders vote on the best unproduced screenplays floating around Tinsel Town. This year a proposed Leonardo DiCaprio project took the top slot in a landslide victory. “The Imitation Game” is the story of Alan Turring, one of the mathematicians responsible for breaking Nazi code in World War II, but who was later persecuted for being a homosexual. When Warner Bros. bought the script back in October, DiCaprio was rumored as the front-runner for the role of Turring. Other scripts mentioned on the list include “Chewie,” a retelling of the making of “Star Wars” from the perspective of Peter Mayhew and Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained.”
