DiCaprio And Scott Are Low Dwellers
Pair re-teaming for crime thriller

24 March 2008  |  Written by Olly Richards  |  Source: The Hollywood Reporter

Leonardo DiCaprio and Ridley Scott must have enjoyed there time making the still unreleased Body of Lies, because they've already signed up for a new movie together. Rumours that this lead to a hair-pulling fight with Russell Crowe over who Ridley loves more are completely unfounded and were just made up by us during the writing of that sentence.

The pair will work on The Low Dwellers, a script by first-timer Brad Ingelsby that is apparently causing much ballyhoo in Hollywood. Set in mid-1980s Indiana, the story focuses on a man newly released from prison who is trying to integrate back into society. This is made harder by someone from his past tailing him to settle a score. The script is said to bare comparisons with A History of Violence and No Country For Old Men.

RE: I'd back Russell Crowe in that fight
L: Taz69 I'd back Russell Crowe in that fight - don't know. Leo is always in pretty good shape, for Blood Diamond, Departed etc. Crowe comes off as an over-aggressive little bitch to me, I don't know why. Di Caprio is a better actor too. Anyway, I think that Di Caprio and Scott are a good match-up and I'd look forward to any collaboration. More

American Gangster was an easy ride for Ridley, shot without any flair that he normally has, but maybe that was the point I guess. He shot it like a 70's movie which it set. I guess I have to see Body of Lies before I have any proper opinion on this. More

I want a new Reidley Scott Sci-Fi, all his recent stuff has been a bit boring and predictable. More

Ridley's recent direction has been pedestrian at best
I don't think he's got it in him to pull off anything as genius and distinctive as Alien or Bladerunner any more. Dicaprio looks like Jack Nicholson in that pic, in a good way. More

Anything by Ridley Scott is always great by me, add DiCaprio who only gets better with age in the acting department and you've got a potentially awesome film coming. More
