DiCaprio and Foxx Reteam for MEAN BUSINESS
Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx are back together again. THR reports that the Django Unchained actors have signed on to star in Mean Business. DiCaprio will also be serving as a producer through his Appian Way production company.
Mean Business is based on S. Craig Zahler‘s upcoming crime novel. The script is being penned by Zahler, and a director is currently being sought.
According to THR the book tells the story of “two detectives who team up to stop a series of attacks on a police department. It begins with a disgraced detective (DiCaprio) who is sent to a Missouri town where crime is spiking. He is partnered with a detective who has his own set of violent issues (Foxx) just in time to see police officers becoming targeted for murder. The two decide to dish out their own brand of justice.”
Django Unchained is one of my favorite films from last year, and this sounds like it will be a great project for the actors. I think it will definitely be a film I see in theaters.
