Leonardo DiCaprio to develop film on Timothy Leary
Leonardo DiCaprio’s film production company is set to develop a film based on the life of LSD advocate Timothy Leary.
DiCaprio knew Leary prior to his death in 1996 and has been anxious to make a film about him for sometime.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, DiCaprio’s company has now employed the talents of the award winning playwright Craig Lucas to develop a screenplay.
The film will reportedly focus on Leary’s life between his enrolment at West Point military school in the 1940’s to his escape from prison in the 1970’s.
