Los Angeles [U.S.A], Sept. 27 (ANI): After making some of the Hollywood's biggest movies like 'Gangs of New York,' 'The Aviator' and 'The Wolf of Wall Street', the team of Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio have zeroed in on their next project.
Titled 'Roosevelt', the movie about the former U.S. president will feature a script by Scott Bloom.
DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson are producing through their Appian Way banner, with Scorsese and Emma Koskoff through Sikelia Productions.
Roosevelt served as the 26th U.S. president from 1901-1909, taking office after President William McKinley was assassinated.
At 42-years-old, the then-vice president became the youngest president in American history.
The Navy veteran also served as New York governor and, during his presidency, pushed his 'Square Deal' domestic policies and began construction on the Panama Canal.
They're also developing adaptations of notable books 'The Devil in the White City' and 'Killers of the Flower Moon'. (ANI)
