Leonardo DiCaprio to produce Enron movie

Hollywood actor to produce and star in sizzling account of Enron scandal

Hollywood heartthrob,
Leonardo
DiCaprio
is to step into the world of high-flying fast-talking corporate
conmen, in a new film based on the collapse of
Enron Corp.

The actor, who received a nominee this year for starring in the role of a
morally-ambiguous diamond smuggler, is to play a fictionalized new hire at Enron
who uncovers an accounting scandal that eventually leads to the implosion of the
energy giant.

Movie-makers, Warner Bros. this week confirmed DiCaprio’s plans to produce
and star in the film.

The studio is reported to have paid seven figures for the rights to New
York Times
reporter Kurt Eichenwald’s, whose novel Conspiracy of
Fools
chronicles the Enron debacle.

Other spin-offs of the Enron scandal included the 2005 documentary,
Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, based on a book of the same title
by Fortune reporters Bethany McLean and Peter Elkind.

The tale also made it to the stage as a musical in late 2006, in a
Houston-based production penned by a local salesman.
