Leonardo DiCaprio will produce and "possibly star" in an adaptation of Norwegian crime novelist Jo Nesbo's Blood on the Snow. Written under Nesbo's pseudonym, Tom Johansen, the book, which will be released next spring (and its planned sequel More Blood on the Water in the spring of 2015), centers around "a hit man who falls in love with his boss’s wife after being assigned to assassinate her."
