Leonardo DiCaprio's "Blood On Snow" lands scribe

May 14th, 2014

Leonardo DiCaprio's 'Blood On Snow' has landed a scribe.

The 39-year-old actor and his Appian Way production company with partner Jennifer Davisson Killoran are set to be working on the film with Kevin McCormick's Langley Park banner for which 'Buried' scribe Chris Sparling will write a screenplay, reports Deadline.com.

The 'Wolf of Wall Street' hunk may also have a role on screen in the new project which is based on Jo Nesbo's book.

While Norwegian author Nesbo and Niclas Salomonsson will executive produce.

The story follows a hit man who is forced to go into hiding after he fails on a job and finds himself on the run with his intended target, who also happens to be his boss' wife.

This comes after reports that DiCaprio has reportedly ''burned'' himself out and has been told to slow down by his friends as they fear his hectic work schedule is having a negative effect on his health and personal life.

A source said: ''Leo has been working like a demon over the past three years - and it's now starting to come back and haunt him.

''He's pretty burned out at the moment and suffering from insomnia from pushing himself so hard.

''Everybody is begging Leo to slow down but he's just very focused on making a lot of money right now -- to the exclusion of almost everything else.''
