DiCaprio to play Rasputin in movie?

Leonardo DiCaprio could be starring as Rasputin

Leonardo DiCaprio is tipped to play Rasputin in a new film.

Warner Bros is set to develop a movie about the Russian mystic and advisor to the Romanov family, and Deadline reported that it is being done with Great Gatsby star Leonardo in mind.

So far the company has bought the pitch from screenwriter Jason Hall.

With plans for the film in the early stages there are no other cast members of a director being mentioned yet.

Rasputin was embraced by the Russian Imperial family but rivals tried to kill him several times, and they eventually succeeded in 1916.

Leonardo, 38, can next be seen in Martin Scorsese's crime drama The Wolf Of Wall Street.
