For the first few days, tale based on true story of stock-smuggling has led to an increase in the sale of tickets in the town with gushing crowds dying to watch the screening of “The Wolf of Wall Street” of Martin Scorsese.
The studio has also put in efforts to roll out the film to critics on the basis of need-to-vote showing it to Hollywood Foreign Press Association and New York Film Critics Circle members to allow them cast their votes. Restricting the actual views, it would be safe to say that there have been maddening positive reactions on the efforts of Scorsese to show the raise and downfall of Jordan Belfort- the stockbroker and suffuse the film with continuous sex, drugs, and filthy wealth coupled with great misbehavior.
The heartthrob of Hollywood Leonardo DiCaprio may be a sensation in an adaptation of Noewegian author, Jo Nesbo’s Crime Novel “Blood On Snow”.
Well this might be just news or the reality of upcoming films starring Leonardo DiCaprio. At this time what Leo has in his basket is entirely too many projects with not even one such script sounding promising than the others with a doubt of rolling out in front of the cameras in next ten years. It wouldn’t sound like problems if the projects he is circling around are no less then lemons, but in reality they aren’t. The latest on his menu is the upcoming thriller “ Blood on Snow” by a Norwegian author Jo Nesbo. Warner Bros has acquired the same for Leo to be potentially a star cast in it and he’ll producing it with Jennifer Davisson Killoran through his famous Appian Way imprint.
The news it that Warner paid between $500,000 to $ 2 million for this thriller as publicized by “Deadline”. It is enough money to believe on hearing a director and a screenwriter signing on before it languishes into the vapour and goes farther than this so called famous story. What I hope is at least it makes it to production as it is no doubt it sounds like quite one of interesting projects. But the twist is if Leo gets into this projects he might end up signing a contract for two films of which first is “Blood on Snow” releasing next spring and “Blood on Snow 2: More Blood” as the author Nesbo has plans to publish the sequel of his book next year. The craziest part is that author is publishing these two thrillers under pseudonym” Tom Johansen” a character, that will come along in his next novel “The kidnapping” lined to publish in 2015.
The brainsick is how this main character will be portrait in the film. As the plotline given for Blood on Snow is misleadingly slight, like one of the part of the thousands projects and no different. The main character of the film which shall be palyed by Leo is a hit man who is chartered to kill his boss’s wife with whom he falls madly in love instead of getting the job done. The story is a bit twisted with lots of complications and an angry ass boss. Nesbo’s work have seen increments in adaptations by Hollywood recently with Morten Tyldum release crime thriller “Headhunters” likely to get an American remake in the near future, a legal drama “ I am Victor” getting picked by NBC. Warner Bros and Langley Park are together working on “The Son” apart from the adaptation “Blood on Snow”.
Leo is entirely working on new more projects like the crime drama “King Harald , a Woodrow Wilson Biopic “ Mean Business” , “Go Fish” , a motion-captured adaptation of a card game, “The wolf of Wall Street” a Martin Scorsese’s film , the trailer of which has been aired.

Leonardo DiCaprio also posted on his facebook page mentioning a strict action should be taken right away by the government authorities so that it can decrease the extent of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere.
The report mentioned that global warming has lead to a remarkable change in climate. Not only the atmosphere but the oceans are also affected to a great extent. Besides, changes in the water cycle have been seen globally causing a debasement in ice-caps and rise in the sea level. It has also resulted in extreme climatic conditions all over the world.
Leonardo asked his fans to sign a new petition on his page so that the concerned government bodies can take an action with immediate step and get all the rules and regulations imposed to curb this degradation of the our planet.
Leonardo wrote: “The science is in: climate change is real and man-made. The debate is over. Spread the world and demand action.” John Kerry, the secretary of State said that doing nothing involves a great risk and only an irresponsible governing body can be lax. The petition has already become the grapevine amongst everyone and is has been signed by 558,000 users already.

Lot of big celebrities and civilians has tried to combat the rise of carbon footprint in the atmosphere. Some of them have been heard and some not but only few have been successful in putting their agenda across the people.

If more celebrities join Leonardo DiCaprio petition against global warming, the combined effort may result in something positive.

Apart from this, it will also include in its portfolio a group of seven hotels, theme park, a convention and exhibition hall, a shopping mart and much more entertainment concepts.
Coined as Oriental Movie Metropolis, the film studio is not really in competition with 47-stage Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad which is tagged as the largest studio by Guinness World Records. Wang told the resources that the film studio will truly revolutionize the China’s economy by becoming a global cultural powerhouse. The ceremony was a grand affair as stars like Leonardo DiCaprio, John Travolta and Catherine Zeta Jones marked their presence.
No doubt that China has emerged as the biggest contributor to global film industry and Oriental Movie Metropolis will set a path for strengthening Hollywood’s commercial and over all status. It has been a challenging task for China but the construction of co-production complex Chinawood has been delayed for some time. It is through real estate development that Wang has acquired a fortune of $US 8. 6bn and now the big-shot is showing a considerable interest in investing the entertainment and film industry. Last year, we heard him purchasing the stupefying range of US Cinema Hotels for about $US 2.6bn.
Wang Jianlin also stole the spotlight when he made an entry into the film production with the directorial debut of Keanu Reeves’ Man of Tai Chi. He was also a part of the historical drama “The Palace”.
Leonardo DiCaprio was seen decked up in a suit at Oriental Movie Metropolis Ceremony where he was joined by stunning actress Nicole Kidman and handsome John Travolta. The event was hosted at Qingdao, China on September 22, 2012 where 38 year Caprio stole the spotlight with his smashing looks.

Moreover there is news is in the air that Leo will be dramatizing in a Woodrow Wilson biopic. The movie is based on Wilson, a new book released by A. Scott Berg.
While Leo was seen sharing greetings with Kate Beckinsale, she looked amazing in a white dress. Everyone including the camerapersons and the fans applauded when Leonardo made his presence for the opening of Wanda’s film studio. Not only this he also apologized for not attending the promotion of the Great Gatsby in China but was really happy to turn up for Quingdao red carpet ceremony. He also expressed his desire to act in a Chinese film one day. Nicole Kidman who was dressed in Prada gown made everyone heads turn in the grand ceremony.

Woodrow Wilson is the pick for the next treatment all set for the big screen. Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio is attached to Wilson and would produce the adaptation with Jennifer Davisson Killoran his Appian Way partner and Berg. Warner Bros. is actually in conversation and negotiation to get the rights to Mr. Wilson on the just released biography by A. Scott Berg on the 28th president. The book has been quite a hit since it hit the shelves last week with more or less positive response. It portrays Wilson as the elected president in 1912 who was there to guide the nation through the World War I.
Berg offers a larger than life Wilson showcasing his heroic deeds with all the progressive achievements like that of creating the Federal Reserve. Along with this comes his strong hold on crusade which was all on the support of the League of Nations and the Treaty of Versailles. He remains to be a controversial figure and downplayed his weak record on civil rights and civil liberties of the African Americans. The basis of the film as served by Berg is the dramatic narration of few moments like his barnstorming tour of America which was to build the support for the League of Nations and eventually led to his stroke. The other side could be his romantic life showing his White House wedding in 1915 to Edith Galt. He is the last president to marry in the White House after his first wife passed away in 1914. Berg’s Wilson will also show his 1912 campaign and his strong decision to enter the World War I in 1917.
Berg attended Princeton University like Wilson who appeared to be a hero in Berg’s life. Wilson is the only president to have a Ph.D who was a professor and a football coach at Wesleyan University, the president of Princeton and the governor of New Jersey from 1910-12 before becoming the president of the nation. Berg spent 12 years researching the book he penned down about Wilson establishing his career as a full time biographer after graduating in 1971.
