Current reports have it that Leonardo DiCaprio is passing on the WWII picture, The Imitation Game and Warner Bros. is following suit.  The studio previously picked up the Graham Moore script for a seven-figure sum as part of last year’s Black List.  The script, an adaptation of Andrew Hodges’ 1983 book, “Alan Turing:The Enigma,” centered on Turing, a mathematician and British cryptographer who cracked German codes and helped the Allies win the war.  Later in life, Turing was prosecuted for being a homosexual, an event that led to his eventual suicide.  There is little word as to why DiCaprio passed on the role, but director J Blakeson (The Disappearance of Alice Creed) is still attached.  Hit the jump for more on why WB has backed out.
