What do Leonardo DiCaprio and a 19th Century Russian mystic nicknamed The Black Monk have in common?

If you answered, "they both stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night" we fear for your soul!

Regardless, the Titanic star is set to play Grigori Rasputin in Rasputin, a flick Warner Bros just announced they plan to develop!

The production company commissioned screenwriter — and one time Buffy the Vampire Slayer actor — Jason Hall to pen the historical script!

Jason also wrote American Sniper, which will be directed by Steven Spielberg and star Bradley Cooper, so we think he has the skills to create something sweet!

We loved Leo as a baddie in Django Unchained and Rasputin is one notoriously evil dude, so we're super stoked to see what happens!!

    Rasputin had a HUGE dick, they have it on display in a museum somewhere
    Do you think they will get Leonardo to wear a big fake one, like they did with Marky Mark ?

    Leo is of Russian /Italian decent, so I doubt he will have a hard time with the accent
    He was in Russia last year made a very generous donation to a charity, Putin personally thanked him
