Leonardo DiCaprio (three-time Academy Award-nominated) is said to be playing opposite Mark Wahlberg in a remake film of the 2006 documentary film ‘Cocaine Cowboys.’
Mark Wahlberg has managed to persuade DiCaprio to take a supporting role in the yet untitled film “Untitled Jon Roberts Project”.
Leonardo DiCaprio ‘is excited about the opportunity to play the airplane pilot who travels with Mark’s character to obtain kilos of cocaine from Pablo Escobar’.
Aside from the reports that the character he is portraying would not be a leading role, further details about DiCaprio’s character in the film has yet to be known.
If DiCaprio is indeed joining the film that is said to be chronicling the largest cocaine trafficker in Miami in the 1970s and 1980s, he would once again reteam with Wahlberg.
Before, he has worked with the former rapper, Wahlberg, in the 1995 adaptation film ‘The Basketball Diaries’ and also in 2006 crime thriller ‘The Departed’.
