Leo, Monahan may reunite for 'I, Claudius'

Sept. 6, 2007 at 11:04 PM   |   Comments

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 6 (UPI) -- Hollywood producer Scott Rudin has acquired screen rights to Robert Graves’ historical novel "I, Claudius," Variety.com reported.

"The Departed" team of actor Leonardo DiCaprio and Oscar-winning screenwriter William Monahan may reunite for the Roman Empire epic, since they were part of a rival bid made by Warner Bros., the trade paper said.

Rudin acquired the rights to the book in a $2 million deal, but hasn’t set the film at a studio yet. It will likely land at Disney, however, because that is where Rudin has an overall deal, Variety said.

The film may also be made with Miramax and Touchstone.

Rudin will produce with Alison Owen, with whom he collaborated on the upcoming "The Other Boleyn Girl."
