Leonardo DiCaprio Taks About Viking Movie With Mel Gibson
Leonardo DiCaprio recently told MTV News in an interview that he is excited to star in the upcoming film about Vikings being directed by Mel Gibson. DiCaprio stated that the film would focus on “barbaric people” and expressed his belief that there has never been a great film focusing on the Nordic culture.
The film’s story is unknown, but given Gibson’s prior work on period films, moviegoers can expect to see a good deal of blood and a high body count. DiCaprio has expressed his excitement at being involved in the project as he is a self-described history buff. DiCaprio also stated during his interview that he believes the Vikings were some of the most barbaric people that ever existed in history.
DiCaprio has a long list of upcoming films, but don’t expect him to miss out on this one. Although DiCaprio has never appeared in a film with as much blood and gore as can be expected in Gibson’s film, he is nonetheless anxious to work with Gibson because he feels Gibson can transport people back in time with his films in a way no other director can.
