Spielberg and DiCaprio in talks to reunite for Ulysses S. Grant biopic

Leonardo DiCaprio & Steven Spielberg May Reteam for Ulysses S. Grant Biopic

You know what the good, movie-going people of this world are clamoring for Hollywood to give us?

"Steven Spielberg and Leonardo DiCaprio are in early discussions to re-team on an epic biopic of Ulysses S. Grant that DiCaprio and Appian Way partner Jeniffer Davisson are producing at Lionsgate".

Variety reports that the movie project was conceived in 2017 when Di Caprio and Appian Way made a decision to produce the biopic based on Ron Chernow's 2017 biography Grant. However, it is not known when he would fit filming into his schedule, as he already has a number of films on his plate.

Appian Way and Lionsgate acquired the rights to the picture late past year, and Spielberg is said to be keen to direct DiCaprio again, after their last picture together: 2002's "Catch Me If You Can". He is now prepping the fifth "Indiana Jones" movie, followed by "West Side Story". "I'm told that Spielberg wants to direct DiCaprio in that role in their first collaboration since the 2002 drama Catch Me If You Can". After Lincoln was assassinated, Andrew Johnson was briefly president before Grant was elected and served from 1869 to 1877.

For Spielberg, Grant could offer the opportunity to reframe the U.S. Civil War.

The film will follow former Western TV series star Rick Dalton and stunt double Cliff Booth as they try to make their way in the late 1969 Hollywood, set against the backdrop of the infamous Manson Family murders. Grant crossed paths with other notable names from history of course, crossing strategic sabres with Robert E. Lee, stamping out the Ku Klux Klan, and collaborating with Mark Twain throughout his life.
