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!!
