Leonardo DiCaprio went out and got himself another movie to star in. The project has yet to get itself a title but it takes place in the world of online casinos that are run out of Costa Rica.

Paramount Pictures snatched up the pitch from  Brian Koppelman and David Levien who also wrote 'Oceans 13' and the incredibly awesome poker flick 'Rounders', which starred Matt Damon and Edward Norton. So these guys have a history of writing some good films that deal with the gambling world.

I'm pretty pumped up about the project. I love a good gambling film. I'm not sure what the story will be about, but at least we know the script is going to be good.

If you don't already know Costa Rica is the Las Vegas and capital of Internet gambling. More than 200 companies have set up shop there, and they don't have to pay taxes on profits they earn outside the country.

I'm sure there has got to be some interesting stories that come out of that whole world of online gambling. I'm sure someone has had their legs broken.
