Leonardo DiCaprioLeonardo DiCaprio is attached to star in ”Atari” (writers – Brian Hecker and Craig Sherman), about the godfather of the video game industry, Nolan Bushnell.

Bushnell was an engineering student, puzzle-lover and game enthusiast who went from fixing broken pinball machines to launching Atari Corp., a video game manufacturer, in the early ’70s.

Its first product was a little game called Pong, which led to hundreds of millions of dollars worth of video game sales. Within a few years, he sold the company to Warner Communications for $28 million.

DiCaprio seems to be getting busier with each passing day. He has Ridley Scott’s ”House of Lies” (”Body of Lies”) and Sam Mendes’ ”Revolutionary Road” opening later this year.

He’s currently filming Martin Scorsese’s ”Ashecliffe” (formerly Shutter Island), and preparing a big screen version of the popular anime Akira.

Leonardo DiCaprio is also interested in the Ian Fleming (creator of James Bond) biopic.
