The Hollywood Reporter reports that Leonardo DiCaprio and the president of his production company, Appian Way, Jennifer Davisson, are producing a movie on the Volkswagen scandal. The rights to Jack Ewing's book on the subject, which hasn't even come out yet, sold to Paramount for "six figures," Variety adds. Leo has previously produced and starred in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, and produced but did not act in Runner Runner, Out of the Furnace, and Red Riding Hood. There are no acting, directing, or writing attachments yet.
