Leonardo DiCaprio & Jamie Foxx Reuniting and They 'Mean Business'

June 27, 2013

Leonardo DiCaprio / Jamie Foxx

After facing off in Django Unchained last year, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx are looking to get back on the big screen together again for Warner Bros. recently acquired crime thriller Mean Business on North Ganson Street. The studio just purchased the rights to S. Craig Zahler's crime novel of the same name, and the author will adapt his own book which is currently looking for a publisher. It must be pretty damn good to already have the attention of Warner Bros. and names like Foxx and DiCaprio, the latter also acting as a producer through his Appian Way production banner. So what's this story all about? Read on!

Deadline says the film follows a hardened detective (DiCaprio) finds himself sent to the hellish rust belt town of Victory, Missour where violent crime has been skyrocketing. There he's teamed with another rough around the edges detective (Foxx) who was recently demoted for publicly brutalizing a suspect. Suddenly the two have to bust their asses to find the person responsible for taking out police officers execution-style. Sounds like an interesting enough script for the two talents to reunite for, and maybe it will get them some Oscar love when the time comes,  but we're waiting to see who will end up behind the camera, so stay tuned.

      Knowing the studios usual clicks the title is probably going to be shortened to "Mean Business".

    I thought Dicaprio said he was going to "take a break from acting" following Wolfe of Wall Street?
