Exciting news! Leo officially has a new movie project coming up, and he will reteam with Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained).

Leonardo DiCaprio To Star In Quentin Tarantino’s New Movie

DEADLINEEXCLUSIVE: Leonardo DiCaprio has said yes to starring in Quentin Tarantino’s new movie, which will reteam the actor and director from 2012’s Django Unchained. The new film, Tarantino’s ninth as director, was scooped up by Sony and already has an August 9, 2019 release date. The deal is expected to close soon, and this will become DiCaprio’s first film since he won the Oscar for The Revenant.

DiCaprio’s will play an aging actor in the story that is being kept under wraps but is a Pulp Fiction-esque movie set in the 1969 Los Angeles during the summer of the Manson murders.

Tarantino has already asked Margot Robbie to play the role of Sharon Tate, and as Deadline has reported Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt have been circling the project with DiCaprio for what is known to be two meaty male roles.

The release date coincides with the 50th anniversary of Tate’s murder at the hands of the Manson family.

The film is being produced by Harry Potter’s David Heyman, Tarantino and Shannon McIntosh, with Georgia Kacandes exec producer and line producer. Production begins this year, and is set with an $18 million California production tax credit.

DiCaprio is repped by LBI Entertainment and Hanson Jacobson.

Nat Geo Acquires Leonardo DiCaprio’s Climate Change Documentary – TCA

National Geographic Channel has acquired worldwide rights to the untitled climate change feature documentary produced by Oscar-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens and Oscar-winning actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio. Martin Scorsese is executive producer.

The film looks at how society can prevent the demise of endangered species, ecosystems and native communities across the globe. It presents visual evidence of a worsening environmental crisis that is inflicting irreversible damage on pristine landscapes from Greenland to Indonesia, disturbing the balance of our planet’s climate and hastening the extinction of animals, according to Nat Geo.

National Geographic Global Networks CEO Courteney Monroe, appearing at TCA where the channel announced the news, said Nat Geo was given the opportunity to look at the DiCaprio docu first “and immediately took it off the market.” It will be released theatrically in October and globally on Nat Geo prior to the presidential election, she said.

One TV critic wondered whether this docu means the network is endorsing Hillary Clinton. “We do not endorse any candidates at all, but climate change issues, and the environment, are essential parts of our DNA,” Monroe answered diplomatically.

In the docu, DiCaprio interviews individuals in both developing and developed nations who provide views on what must be done today – and in the future – to transition our economic and political systems into environmentally friendly institutions.

Subjects include President Barack Obama, Former President Bill Clinton, Secretary of State John Kerry, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Pope Francis, as well as top NASA researchers, forest conservationists, respected scientists, community leaders and activists.

“National Geographic has a long history of inspiring others to care about the planet,” said Monroe. “Now, in the midst of the undeniable crisis that is climate change, we have a responsibility to inspire others to act. I have no doubt that the global reach of our brand, combined with DiCaprio’s passion for this issue and Fisher’s compelling storytelling will bring this critical issue to the forefront like never before.”

“Climate change is the most fundamental threat facing our planet,” said DiCaprio in a statement. “We must work together as a collective voice to demand major action now. Our very survival depends on it. This documentary translates the symptoms and solutions of climate change before information is distorted, as it often is, by those with a financial interest in fossil fuel production.”

“If you could know the truth about how much damage we’ve done to our planet and how much time we have to find solutions before this whole ecosystem collapses — would you want to know? We can no longer turn a blind eye to this issue and hope that it resolves itself,” added Stevens. “My hope is that this film provides a wakeup call about our inevitable fate should we fail to act. And on the eve of what could be the most important election of our time, I hope this film not only educates the public on the serious threat we face, but also forces voters to really think about how important their vote is this fall.”

The film is a RatPac Documentary Films, Appian Way and Insurgent Media production. It is produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, Brett Ratner, Fisher Stevens, James Packer, Jennifer Davisson and Trevor Davidoski and executive produced by Martin Scorsese.

The deal was negotiated by John Sloss of Cinetic Media with Tim Pastore, President of Original Programming and Production for National Geographic Channel.

Leonardo DiCaprio to Host Hillary Clinton Fundraiser

Leonardo DiCaprio will host Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for a fundraiser later this month when she makes her next visit to Los Angeles, sources said on Monday.

The event on Aug. 23 is priced at $33,400-per-person and is billed as a “Conversation with Hillary.” The first $2,700 will go to the Clinton campaign, and the remainder will do to the Democratic National Committee and state and local parties. Complete details are to be announced on Tuesday. Sources said plans were in the works for the event to take place at his home, but they were still being finalized.

This will be Clinton’s first visit to Los Angeles since the Democratic National Convention. Invites to a series of events began to go out in recent days.

DiCaprio attended a Clinton fundraiser at Harvey Weinstein’s home in New York in June.

The night before, a number of entertainment figures are planning a dinner-time event. Deadline reported last week that the Aug. 22 will be hosted at the home of Haim and Cheryl Saban, although sources said that plans were still being finalized. Sources say the list of co-hosts also includes Thomas Tull and his wife Alba, Megan and Peter Cherin, Robert Iger and Willow Bay, Casey and Laura Wasserman, Jeffrey and Marilyn Katzenberg and Jon and Ellen Vein. Tickets start at $2,700 per person, and run to $27,000 for co-host level and $100,000 for host. The latter includes a dinner and photo with Clinton.

Another event is in the works for earlier in the day that will be a lower dollar event.

Clinton also plans events on Aug. 23 in Laguna Beach.
