Clint Eastwood has finally got his hands on Leonardo Di Caprio. After several years of trying not fit himself into a Clint Eastwood movie and also working with Martin Scorsese he has finally realized he has to spread his wings a little. The Edgar Hoover film is based on a script by Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black.
The film has now ended up at Warner Bros and Malpaso production with Clint Eastwood set to take on the directorâ€™s chair. There is no official title for the film yet but it has been speed tracked to get a release date.
This will be performance in the lines of his seminal Howard Hughes take. Edgar Hoover was a very powerful man and it will be great to see Leonardo DiCaprio in this role. But there can also be some conservatism from Clint Eastwood part of the character being a cross dresser. The film also deals with a lot of sexuality head on. There will be enough of color in the story for both the actor and director to draw from.
