Leonardo DiCaprio is now confirmed for the J. Edgar Hoover biopic. Clint Eastwood is directing and the film is being produced by Brian Grazer. The film will tell the story of the first director of the FBI, J. Edgar Hoover. Hoover was instrumental in turning the FBI into what it is today.
The project is also on the fast track at Warner Bros which means things are going to get going quickly. You can expect there to be a lot more news coming in about this film over the summer. The film seems very similar to The Good Shepherd, which came out a few years ago and didn’t do too well. Hopefully this picture will have more luck.
What do you think about the film? Are you looking forward to it?
