DiCaprio to star in Gibson's "Viking"

Leonardo DiCaprio will be starring in an untitled Viking period drama which Mel Gibson will direct. William Monahan "The Departed" is now writing the script for the movie.

Gibson will co-produce with Graham King and Tim Headington in a co-operation between King's GK Films and Gibson's Icon Prods.

King produced the 2006 crime thriller film "The Departed," scripted by Monahan, and starring DiCaprio. The movie won four Academy Awards at the 79th Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director (Martin Scorsese), Best Film Editing (Thelma Schoonmaker), and Best Adapted Screenplay (William Monahan).

King was quoted by Daily Variety as saying, "This will be an awe-inspiring story, created with some of the industry's finest cinematic talent, and I am just over the moon to be making this film with Mel, Leo and Bill."
