artin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio are set to team up again.
The pair will be reunited after their 'The Departed' Oscar success on new film 'The Wolf of Wall Street'.
DiCaprio will play Jordan Belfort, in the true-life story of a corrupt Wall Street stockbroker sentenced to four years in prison and fined $110 million before turning government witness.
The film will be adapted from Belfort's autobiography, who is still $75 million in debt.
The Hollywood pair worked together on gangster film 'The Departed', which earned Scorsese the 2006 Academy Award for Best Director.
They also collaborated on box office hits 'The Aviator' and 'Gangs Of New York'.
It is unclear when production will begin as both Scorsese and DiCaprio have numerous projects already lined up.
DiCaprio will spend the summer shooting 'Revolutionary Road' with Kate Winslet.
Scorsese is directing a documentary spanning the career of The Rolling Stones and an adaptation of children's book 'The Invention of Hugo Cabret'.
Scorsese and DiCaprio are also due to work together on biopic 'The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt'.
