Leonardo DiCaprio is one of today's biggest stars - so it follows that if he's interested in a project, particularly one that's been having trouble getting off the ground, it's good news for the other filmmakers involved. So director Todd Field has something to smile about, since DiCaprio is reportedly interested in a "western-flavored" script he's been trying to get produced for years. Here's a plot synopsis, pardner:
"'Creed' tells the 1910-era story of a criminal named Rawbone who tries to take a cache of weapons into Mexico as part of the country's revolution but is caught and then accompanied by a government agent who, it turns out, shares a secret past with him."

Whether DiCaprio ends up playing Rawbone (oh god, what a great name) or the government agent remains to be seen. Personally, I hope to see him tackle Rawbone, because between this and Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained we'd have a nice set of DiCaprio bad guys to watch and enjoy. And isn't that what it's all about? (LA Times)
