film stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are set to reuinte for a new movie, Revolutionary Road
, to be produced by DreamWorks.
The film is an adaption of a 1961 novel by Richard Yates, and will be directed by Kate's hubby Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition
). Revolutionary Road
is expected to start shooting next summer.
The story follows suburban Connecticut couple Frank and April Wheeler, who bury their own dreams in order to conform with the American Dream.
DiCaprio and Winslet's last collaboration, Titanic
, won a record-tying 11 Oscars and made over (US) $1.8 billion worldwide at the box office. (Unfortunately, writers must have found it too tough to come up with a Titanic 2
storyline featuring both their characters? ;-)
DiCaprio's more recent movie-starring roles include The Departed, The Aviator, Catch Me If You Can,
and Gangs of New York.
Winslet meanwhile scored an Oscar nomination for last year's film Little Children.
She has never actually worked with her Oscar-winning husband, Sam Mendes.
