Bond director Marc Forster is set to direct a political thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
Forster - who directed Quantum Of Solace - has been snapped up by Paramount to take on The Chancellor Manuscript, and Peter O'Brien is set to adapt the original book for the film, according to Variety.
The plot centres on Peter Chancellor, who writes a novel about Washington powerbrokers who are blackmailed into changing policies.
Operatives get hold of the script and believe he has uncovered their actual plans.
Forster's credits also include The Kite Runner, while O'Brien has worked on the likes of Unlocked, and is writing the game story for Microsoft game Halo: Reach.
