Leonardo DiCaprio & Jamie Foxx Mean Business
They're teaming up for a crime pic

They were opponents when they shared the screen in Django Unchained, but for their next film it seems Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx are looking to team up. They’re both now attached to Mean Business On North Ganson Street.

While we’re pretty certain that title will change as the movie makes its way through development, S. Craig Zahler will adapt the script from his own crime novel.

Mean Business follows two detectives who join forces to try to halt a series of attacks on their force. DiCaprio would be a disgraced detective who is sent to a crime-ridden Missouri town. There, he’s partnered with Foxx’s troubled ‘tec just as someone starts to murder police officers in the area. The unlikely duo decides to do something about it.

DiCaprio is also producing the film and will now start looking for a director. He’ll next be seen in The Wolf Of Wall Street, which won’t see UK screens until January 17 next year. Foxx’s next is White House Down, which is due to arrive on September 6. The trailer is lurking below.

Interesting
Two actors who rarely give bad performances, even in an average film. Looking forward to this. More
