MGM is currently in final negotiations to have Leonardo DiCaprio play Jim Jones in an upcoming film.
Anytime Leo is set to play anything in a movie I do believe it deserves proper awareness, however Twitter is absolutely taking off over the news! It seems like just the right fit to them.
Most would think he has his work cut out for him, but anyone who thinks that with Leo clearly hasn’t seen What’s Eating Gilbert Grape…this is nothing…
Who Can Do It? Leo
Talking about the best fucking actor in the world. Over seven Academy Award nominations for movies like:
- What’s Eating Gilbert Grape
- The Aviator
- Blood Diamond
- The Wolf of Wall Street
- The Revenant (won)
- Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
Leo not only has been snubbed many times, but is aging like fine fucking wine so a role as a dipset legend is nothing.
Leo DiCaprio As Jim Jones…The 70’s Cult Leader?
Yeah, no Leo won’t be playing Dipset legend Jim Jones. It’ll actually be Jim Jones the former cult leader who was responsible for over 900 deaths back in the 70’s.
Look, the events that took place then really are fucked up and it wouldn’t exactly strike the eye as something you’d wanna make a movie about….but Leo DiCaprio taking the role tells me that they gonna come with something special on screen. I don’t know a whole lot about the entire situation back then, which is why I’m interested in the movie. That’s why they make em.
I know a zillion mothafucka’s who watch crime/killer docs every day so this is just kinda taking it to the highest level with Hollywood…
Jim Jones Summary
He was a fucking monster, plain and simple. Jones rejected traditional Christianity and eventually claimed to be God himself. He then formed little cult towns like Jonestown escaping government control. After killing a U.S. government rep Leo Ryan, who was sent to investigate, Jones then organized a massive murder-suicide that involved hundreds of his followers (many were children) to drink Flavor Aid mixed with cyanide. Sheesh, man.
Shit is completely fucked, but Hollywood will always wanna make something of events like this in history. Ya gotta trust that Leo will pull this off like always.
Don’t blame Hollywood for entertainment just like ya can’t blame Leo DiCaprio for how ya ole lady acts in public.
