Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx are joining forces for the upcoming Warner Bros. flick Mean Business on North Ganson Street.
The studio recently acquired the rights to the novel from S. Craig Zahler. He will also pen the script for the upcoming big-screen adaptation.
According to The Wrap, Leonardo DiCaprio will produce Mean Business on North Ganson Street through his production company Appian Way. Partner Jennifer Davisson Killoran will reportedly co-produce the feature.
Mean Business tells the story of a detective (DiCaprio) who returns to Victory, Missouri just as violent crime in on the upswing. In order to track down the person responsible for the recent murder of several officers, he will will team up with another detective (Foxx) who landed in hot water for beating up a suspect.
The Huffington Post reports it could be quite some time before the flick finds its way in front of a camera. Both Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx currently have their hands full with a number of pending projects.
Foxx is currently slated to portray a Daddy Warbucks-style character in director Will Gluck's upcoming adaptation of Annie. DiCaprio, meanwhile, is attached to star in a film about Rasputin. Fans of Zahler's novel may have to wait a while before the flick finds its way into theaters.
The actors previously teamed up for director Quentin Tarantino's ultra-violent Civil War-era action flick Django Unchained last year. While the acclaimed filmmaker's bloody western found Foxx and DiCaprio on opposite sites, they'll apparently be working together for their next project.
While you're waiting for more information about this project to surface, you can spend some time with Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum this weekend. Roland Emmerich's thriller White House Down is slated to hit theaters this weekend.
