Jean Dujardin In 'Wolf Of Wall Street': Oscar Winner Negotiating For Martin Scorsese Feature

Posted: Updated:

Jean Dujardin may have found a pretty incroyable follow-up to "The Artist." Variety reports the Best Actor winner is in negotiations to join Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street."

The French actor would play Jean-Jacques Handali, described by the trade paper as a "suave Swiss banker." (As if Dujardin could be anything but suave.) He would join a cast that already includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and Coach Taylor Kyle Chandler.

Based on the memoir by Jordan Belfort, "Wolf of Wall Street" follows a stock broker who finds fortune and excess in the free-spirited '90s, only to be brought down by embezzlement charges. DiCaprio will play Belfort, while Hill co-stars as his friend and colleague.

The film marks the fifth collaboration between DiCaprio and Scorsese, following "Gangs of New York," "The Aviator," "The Departed" and "Shutter Island."
