Leonardo DiCaprio is looking a bit like the 30-something Howard Hughes we saw in The Aviator. But he is not making a sequel. The actor is shooting his fifth outing with Martin Scorsese, titled The Wolf of Wall Street, which is based on a memoir by Jordan Belfort.

Once Scorsese is through with the film, he is expected to start filming a documentary (for HBO) on Bill Clinton.
The first time she sat in the director’s chair (In the Land of Blood and Honey), she was accused of plagiarism. Angelina Jolie is back in the chair with Unbroken, an adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand’s (known for Seabiscuit) best-selling novel about Olympian and fighter pilot Louis Zamperini (turns 96 in January), who survived on a raft for almost seven weeks after his plane crashed during the Second World War.

Jackie Chan has decided to join Sylvester Stallone and his merry gang of ageing mercenaries in The Expendables 3. At a press conference in Kuala Lumpur, the Rush Hour actor said, “Sly had invited me to be in The Expendables 2 but I was too busy filming CZ12 and couldn’t make a commitment to the film. But he did extend his invitation to the third movie, which I agreed on the condition that I will be appearing as more than just a minor role with a few scenes.” The Expendables 2 has reportedly netted $53,090,000 in China.
