Real Wolf of Wall Street Shopping a Reality Show

Leonardo DiCaprio plays Jordan Belfort in THE WOLF OF WALL STREET, from Paramount Pictures and Red Granite Pictures.

Of course. Of course Jordan Belfort, the inspiration for Leonardo DiCaprio's debauched starring role in The Wolf of Wall Street, is angling for a reality show. It makes perfect narrative sense. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show would involve Belfort "stepping in to help others who, like him, have hit rock bottom but still hold out some hope for redemption." Is there any conceivable way Scorsese could shoot an epilogue to the film at this point, or is that veering into George Lucas CGI Jabba territory?
