DiCaprio set for Prohibition drama?

Leonardo DiCaprio is tipped to take the lead in a new Prohibition-era movie.

The Departed star is producing Live By Night, which is based on Dennis Lehane's upcoming novel of the same name, and Deadline reports that he also looks set to star in the flick.

The film follows gangsters who run rum on a path from Cuba to Boston during Prohibition.

The book is the second in a trilogy and is yet to be published.

It won't be the first time that 37-year-old Leo has starred in a Lehane adaptation, as he previously appeared in Shutter Island.

The author's books Mystic River and Gone Baby Gone have also been adapted for the big screen.
