Hmm. Leonardo as Leonardo. Maybe he is rooting for Oscar #2.August 12, 2017 at 12:49 pm #1202183281

Da Vinci should be a great movie subject, I don’t like Leo that much but he can be great at times so I hope he is here. Leonardo Dicaprio playing Leonardo Da Vinci kind of sounds like a joke.August 13, 2017 at 8:28 am #1202183827
This sounds AMAZING.February 1, 2018 at 3:16 pm #1202485316February 1, 2018 at 3:59 pm #1202485326

Wow can’t think of anyone more perfect for this role. Def a Oscar type role. I am in the process of reading the book. Have to say it is a tough read very technical. DaVinci was an absolute genius. He incorporated so much more in his work then art. He was a Scientist. He was a mathematician. He was a genius and a complicated man. He was gay and if folks thought Oliver liked them a little too young they are going to have a major problem with Leo V.February 1, 2018 at 4:51 pm #1202485360
Be interesting who will play the younger Leonardo if the screenplay follows the book.February 2, 2018 at 12:14 am #1202485698
As Thomas said, Leonardo Da Vinci was a very complex human being. I fear this will end up being a cliche portrait of Da Vinci, but we’ll see.February 3, 2018 at 8:48 am #1202486508
