Leonardo DiCaprio Eyeing Adam McKay’s ‘Don’t Look Up’ With Cate Blanchett And Jennifer Lawrence

With Jennifer Lawrence and Cate Blanchett already set to star in Don’t Look Up, Adam McKay is clearly putting together another star-studded lineup. We’ve come to expect that from him ever since his Anchorman days, and it has carried over since he became an Oscar-winning filmmaker on films such as The Big Short and Vice. So what’s one more? If you have a chance to add Leonardo DiCaprio into the mix, you do it.

With budget concerns causing a hiccup in Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon, DiCaprio found himself with a little bit of extra time. According to Variety, that time might be spent with a role in McKay’s Don’t Look Up, as DiCaprio is eyeing a project to do beforehand. Nothing is confirmed at this point, though, and DiCaprio could decide to do something different.

So we’ll see what happens on this, but the prospect of McKay directing fellow Oscar winners Lawrence, Blanchett, and DiCaprio is hella enticing.
