Casting Call: A New 'Low' For Leonardo DiCaprio

Leo ready to dwell in “Low” places. Catherine Zeta-Jones hits her funny bone. Plus, Paul Giamatti joins Julia Roberts and Clive Owen for a corporate spy game. It’s all in the latest edition of the Access Hollywood Casting Call!

Leonardo DiCaprio will re-team with director Ridley Scott in the new thriller “The Low Dweller,” per The Hollywood Reporter.

Set in Indiana in the mid ‘80s, “Dweller” follows a man (DiCaprio) trying to adjust to society after being released from jail, only to find someone from his past looking to settle a score.

DiCaprio will also co-produce the drama with Scott, who is also in line to direct.

The duo recently wrapped production on “Body Of Lies,” a drama directed by Scott, which stars DiCaprio and Russell Crowe.

“The Low Dweller” was written by first-time scribe Brad Ingelsby, a twenty-something insurance salesman from Pennsylvania, who wrote “Dweller” in his spare time.

DiCaprio will next be seen on the big screen alongside Kate Winslet in the drama “Revolutionary Road.”
