Mel Gibson Will Force Leonardo DiCaprio to Learn Old Norse

Mel Gibson isn't the type to use historically inaccurate languages in his historical fiction. Perhaps you saw Apocalypto and were pissed that you had to spend the whole movie reading? Well, Gibson plans to continue that tradition for his upcoming Viking movie by forcing Leonardo DiCaprio to learn some combination of Old English and Old Norse. "I think it's going to be English—the English that would have been spoken back then—and Old Norse," he told Collider. "Whatever the 9th century had to offer. I'm going to give you real." Leo better start studying now. [Collider]
