Leonardo DiCaprio was reportedly hired by Warner Bros. Pictures to play a main role named Nicholai Hel in the upcoming movie ‘Satori’. DiCaprio has been tapped to play the role of an assassin from Japan. The movie was the adaption of Don Winslow’s best-selling novel ‘Satori’.

Leonardo’s role is slightly described as a man who was raised in Japan and was taught the assassination skills. He is also a genius at the Japanese chess-like traditional game, Go. His master is a military general who passes on all his secrets and the student repays his master by assassinating him to prove his devotion as the military leader would have been disgraced and killed as a war criminal.

Then Hel will be thrown to a prison in Tokyo and will be tortured for three years. Finally, after getting released by CIA after agreeing to kill a Soviet commissioner in China, he is trained by a French beauty, also falls in love with her. During the mission, he will be betrayed by his backers and uses his Go skills to arrange strategy to make his way through Vietnam.

The movie’s story is set in the post World War II era. However, the screenplay will be provided by the novel’s author itself alongside screenwriter of ‘Armageddon’, Shane Salerno. The producers of the movie are John Lesher and Jennifer Killoran of Grisdi Productions and Appian Way respectively.

Currently, Leonardo DiCaprio is filming ‘The Great Gatsby’, playing the lead role Jay Gatsby. Also, he is starring in Quentin Tarantino’s drama ’Django Unchained’ playing the role of antagonist Calvin Candie.
