Now, according to Deadline, Warner Bros will be tailoring the adaptation of Don Winslow's bestselling novel, "Satori" for DiCaprio.
The "Titanic" dreamboat is slotted to play Nicholai Hel, a Westerner raised in Japan, learning the tricks of the trade from his stepfather, who also happens to be a martial arts expert.
When his stepfather is sentenced to public execution, Hel kills him to protect his honor, which lands him in prision. It is there that a CIA agent discovers him and hires him to kill a political figure.
The thriller has room for sequels and is being angled similarly to the"Bourne" series.
After playing the dapper Gatsby in the Baz Luhrmann production, DiCaprio will be moving onto Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained."
