Though deals are expected to close for all parties, a production start date is still up in the air, especially when it comes to DiCaprio’s schedule. While the studio and producers were figuring out what would happen with “Killers of the Flower Moon,” sources say the Oscar winner was looking at a number of projects to do before it, including Adam McKay’s next film for Netflix. That movie also stars Jennifer Lawrence, and could possibly go into production before “Killers of the Flower Moon” if DiCaprio were to sign on.

So an enterprising person on a Blanchett fan forum found this:
JUDITH BOULEY CASTING is (now) searching for a PHOTO DOUBLE / LOOK-ALIKE to work for approximately 4 MONTHS on her NETFLIX FILM!
. Caucasian Male . Ht: 6' and Wt: 165 lbs and Coat: 42 . Appearing to be late 30s - to mid 40s . Medium Brown hair (or willing to let Hair Dept. put a temporary color in your hair) . Available to work from November 9, 2020 - end of February, 2021. . Rate: $209 per 8 hour day . Shoots in Massachusetts
Seems like "Film Updates" too is speculating about it based on that information.
I think it's highly possible, i mean, who else?? Plus the shooting period of Don't Look Up wraps exactly when Killers of The Flower Moon should begin (February 2021).
It could be very well be him.
I'm not sure how credible this is but it makes sense. I wonder what happened with Nightmare Alley though. He could have done PTA's new movie too.
It's kinda insane he turned down Guillermo Del Toro and Paul Thomas Anderson for an Adam McKay Netflix film, (especially him being the pickiest actor in the entire film industry), but I guess it means the role must be incredibly juicy and baity, and the script and story must be really great for him to potentially join in.
It's better than nothing, but it seems like the 3rd dumbest decision of his career to turn down PTA for this.
Wouldn't be surprised if this had a much better script. This coming from someone who greatly prefers to PTA to McKay who I loathe -- but I don't think PTA is a particularly good writer and the behind-the-scenes pics from this, eh. I can also see Leo not thinking the character was that much of a departure from Rick Dalton judging from those pics.

I am also of the opinion that PTA isn't a very good writer, but I feel the same way about McKay as a writer. And they're worlds apart as directors.
I will attempt to be more open-minded about this project, even though I think McKay is a hack, at least until we know more about the role DiCaprio is supposed to be playing (if he does end up doing it).
