DiCaprio Is Ridley's Low Dweller

Guess they had fun making Body of Lies, huh?

Ridley Scott and Leonardo DiCaprio are teaming up again — and making a rookie screenwriter very wealthy in the process.

Variety reports that Relativity Media has purchased The Low Dweller, described as “a dark drama set in 1986 Indiana,” from writer Brad Ingelsby, “paying $650,000 against $1.1 million.” According to Variety, Ingelsby — a 27-year-old AFI grad — was living with his parents last week and working at his dad’s insurance company. From the article:

Plan is for DiCaprio to play Slim, a man released after serving years in prison for murder who wants only to follow through on his promise to marry his long-suffering girlfriend. But when he discovers his brother has been murdered after getting involved in a gambling racket, he feels obliged to avenge the murder.

As Variety notes, both DiCaprio and Scott have other projects lined up, but since the producers don’t expect The Low Dweller to take more than 35 days to shoot, it seems likely that the director and star — who just finished working together on the Iraq war drama Body of Lies — will be able to squeeze it in.
