Leonardo DiCaprio's new incarnation can be Grigory Rasputin

U.S. actor Leonardo DiCaprio will play the role of notorious Russian historical figure, Grigory Rasputin. The script was written by Jason Hall, known for his work on American Sniper. 

The film will be made at Warner Bros. studio. The plot is centered on the rise of Grigory Rasputin and his life after the loss of his brother during childhood years.
