The High Note Review "Typically isn’t my type of movie, but it worked for me!'

Leonardo DiCaprio To Star In Roosevelt

Though Martin Scorsese is currently gathering a team of his former collaborators for The Irishman, Leonardo DiCaprio is not among them. Fear not, though; the pair has several films in development and is adding another, a drama of former US President Theodore Roosevelt, called, to little surprise, Roosevelt.

DiCaprio has been interested in playing the man for a few years now, but a previous attempt stalled in limbo. Now, though, Scott Bloom is writing a new draft, with Scorsese adding it to his directorial to-do list and Paramount has snapped up the chance to make the movie through its first-look deal with DiCaprio's Appian Way company.

Roosevelt's life is certainly interesting enough to be worth movi-fication, given his military exploits, and a political track that saw him rocket through the New York governorship and then to vice president under William McKinley, rising to the top job after McKinley was assassinated in 1901. He became known for his conservation work, setting up national parks and forests.

Scorsese and DiCaprio are already shepherd a couple of potential films towards screens, an adaptation of The Devil In The White City and Killers Of The Flower Moon.

Scott (Davidson) has been a case of arrested development ever since his firefighter father died when he was seven. He’s now reached his mid-20s having achieved little, chasing a dream of becoming a tattoo artist that seems far out of reach. As his ambitious younger sister (Maude Apatow, HBO’s Euphoria) heads off to college, Scott is still living with his exhausted ER nurse mother (Oscar® winner Marisa Tomei) and spends his days smoking weed, hanging with the guys—Oscar (Ricky Velez, Master of None), Igor (Moises Arias, Five Feet Apart) and Richie (Lou Wilson, TV’s The Guest Book)—and secretly hooking up with his childhood friend Kelsey (Bel Powley, Apple TV+’s The Morning Show).



But when his mother starts dating a loudmouth firefighter named Ray (Bill Burr, Netflix’s F Is for Family), it sets off a chain of events that will force Scott to grapple with his grief and take his first tentative steps toward moving forward in life.

The film also stars Steve Buscemi as Papa, a veteran firefi…
