Leonardo DiCaprio is said to be interested in a role in The Creed Of Violence.

The Hollywood star is apparently eager to play one of the lead roles in the Western-influenced script - and is set to be offered the part, reported the LA Times.

A spokeswoman for Universal, who has been trying to develop the film with director Todd Field for several years, did not comment on Leonardo's interest, and the actor's spokesman also declined to comment.

The story, based on the 2010 novel by Boston Teran, follows a criminal named Rawbone, who tries to take a cache of weapons into Mexico but is caught by a government agent who shares a secret past with him.

Leonardo - who was last seen in Christopher Nolan's Inception - has been filming J Edgar with Clint Eastwood and is set to start work on Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, where he has been cast as the villain.

You're more motivated to help people than turn big profits. Some friends will discourage you from entering such a field, fearing it won't be lucrative. Don't worry. You'll make a very good salary by doing what you love. Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to be miserable to earn a good living.More
