In a role that doesn’t involve him hunting James Bond, Jean Dujardin (The Artist) looks set to join Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill in Martin Scorsese’s financial thriller The Wolf of Wall Street. This all comes from Variety, stating that the Oscar-winning actor is currently in the talking stage of the agreement.
The film is based off the memoirs of Jordon Belfort, a multimillionaire stockbroker in his mid-20s who lived the rock star’s life before winding up in federal prison for fraud and money laundering. Screenwriter Terence Winter (TV’s Boardwalk Empire) handled the adaptation.
Belfort will be portrayed by Scorsese’s BFF DiCaprio, while Dujardin will play his Swiss money-laundering associate Jean-Jacques Handali. Jonah Hill stars as Belfort’s friend and business partner and Kyle Chandler (Super 8) takes the role of the FBI agent that takes him down.
