Leonardo DiCaprio has been elected to star in the Woodrow Wilson biopic, Wilson. Based on the A. Scott Berg biography of the 28th U.S. President, the rights of which were recently acquired by Warner Bros., DiCaprio will also produce through his Appian Way banner along with partner Jennifer Davisson Killoran. Generally well-received, Wilson portrays the President in a positive light when it comes to his handling of World War I, the Federal Reserve and the League of Nations, but downplays his weak stance on civil liberties. In other words, a biography tailor-made for movie-going audiences. There are plenty of events from Wilson’s life, both before and during his Presidency, to make a worthwhile biopic nonetheless.
