So much for the "long, long break." Leonardo DiCaprio is being eyed for Scott Cooper's third feature as a writer/director, The Road Home, based on a Michael Armour novel set in the Great Depression. DiCaprio's Appian Way banner produced Cooper's forthcoming sophomore film Out of the Furnace, a revenge thriller with a heavy-hitting cast. Appian Way will also work on The Road Home, so even if DiCaprio decides to do the hiatus thing after all, the project's got a pedigree.
