Warner Bros. is securing the rights to a new book series written by Jo Nesbo called Blood on the Snow. It will be developed as a star vehicle for Leonardo DiCaprio, who is also producing it.
The first of two books doesn't come out until next spring, but the story follows a hit man who is asked by his boss to kill the man’s wife. The hit man ends up falling in love with her, so of course things get really complicated from there.
DiCaprio is an incredible actor, and he always tends to pick great projects to devote his time to, so I imagine this is going to end up being a film worth checking out.
