Having recently appeared as the enigmatic charmer Jay Gatsby in The Great Gatsby, Leonardo DiCaprio is set to play an even more mysterious and hypnotically enticing figure.

According to Deadline, Warner Bros has purchased Jason Hall’s pitch for Rasputin, which is being developed as a starring vehicle for DiCaprio.

When the script is completed, we will hopefully see DiCaprio affect a Russian accent to play the notorious mystic.

Rasputin  was a close adviser to Tsar Nicholas II and his wife Alexandra. He also, apocryphally, survived numerous attempts on his life.

Hall previously wrote the script for American Sniper, which is set to be helmed by Steven Spielberg and star Bradley Cooper.
