Following the phenomenally successful THE ARTIST, leading man (and award-winning sex bomb) Jean Dujardin was surely heading for big things. Aside from his limited grasp of English, there was little holding back the breakout star, who’s proved himself as one the most charismatic talents to emerge last year.
Predictably, it hasn’t taken long for Hollywood to come calling, as Dujardin is reportedly in talks to join Martin Scorsese’s next production, THE WOLF OF WALL STREET. When it comes to cinematic credentials, they don’t come much more revered than Scorsese, who has a long history of forming partnerships with super-talented actors, such as Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio. Could the brilliant Dujardin become a regular fixture in the legendary director’s future work?
THE WOLF OF WALL STREET is adapted from Jordan Belfort’s memoir, which charts his riches to rags to story, drug addiction, personal demons, and too many late nights. Belfort will be played by DiCaprio, with Dujardin in talks to take the role of a Swiss banker involved with Belofort’s shenanigans.
As always with Scorsese – exciting stuff.
THE WOLF OF WALL STREET begins shooting this August.
