The Hollywood Reporter also stated that ImageMovers are set to produce the film under their Universal-based banner with Jeff Malmberg who will act as executive producer. No castings have been made as yet, however sources say that Zemeckis is hoping to court for the powerful lead role.
Call me fickle but any film that Dicaprio is set to star in is half way there to success. Is there anyone else that you would you like to see in the leading role?
