  • Leo Meet Leo: Paramount, Universal Vie For Walter Isaacson Da Vinci Book For DiCaprio

Deadline reports that a recent biography on the famed painter is now at the centre of a major bidding war between Universal and Paramount, with Leonardo DiCaprio's production company Appian Way in the middle of it with the man himself, Leonardo DiCaprio, set to star as his namesake. It is reported that Paramount has acquired the rights to the book on Leonardo Da Vinci by Walter Isaacson, thus beating Universal in a bid to make this film. The former Time magazine editor also has written bestsellers on Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein, the latter of which was the basis for the Emmy-nominated NatGeo series Genius that starred Geoffrey Rush.

Leonardo DiCaprio apparently wanted to play the prominent artist as he was so named because his pregnant mother was looking at a Leonardo da Vinci painting in a museum in Italy when he first kicked.

So, can you see Leonardo DiCaprio as Leonardo Da Vinci?

DiCaprio and Scorcese previously worked together on The Wolf of Wall Street, The Aviator, Shutter Island, The Departed, and Gangs of NY. His last film The Revenant showed him in the role of frontiersman Hugh Glass, which earned him his first best actor Oscar.

This film is the ninth time that the Oscar award-winning actor will be playing a character based on a real person on screen. Walter Isaacson's Leonardo Da Vinci will hit book shelves on October 17, 2017.
