Paramount has beaten out Universal in a seven-figure bidding war for the rights to Walter Isaacson’s book on Leonardo da Vinci, Variety can confirm. The biopic will star fellow Leo, Leonardo DiCaprio.
DiCaprio will also produce the film under his Appian Way banner alongside president of production Jennifer Davisson.

This is too funny.
Hmm. Leonardo as Leonardo. Maybe he is rooting for Oscar #2.
As if I didn’t mix there names up enough already
Da Vinci should be a great movie subject, I don’t like Leo that much but he can be great at times sonhopw he is here. Leonardo Dicaprio playing Leonardo Da Vinci kind of sounds like a joke.
