The Hollywood Reporter brings news of another percolating project for actor/producer Leonardo DiCaprio. This one’s a prison drama called "Kite" that aims to take you inside the harsh world of a maximum security prison in California.
"Warner Bros. Pictures has pre-emptively picked up "Kite," a prison drama from writers Michael Lander and Ryan Roy, for Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Simpson to produce via their Appian Way shingle. "Kite" also would serve as a potential acting vehicle for DiCaprio. The story is described as an intense fictional drama that examines corruption in the California prison system. Echoing real-life events, "Kite" focuses on gang culture and guard corruption in a modern California maximum-security prison."
