It’s time for Leo to do it again.
DiCaprio and Davisson will be producing through their Appian Way banner. The movie will be based on Jack Ewing’s upcoming book, which details the scandal surrounding Volkswagen’s decision to place illegal software in their clean diesel cars. Every time a car was being tested for fuel emissions, the software would turn on the emissions to cheat the test in hopes of meeting Environmental Protection Agency standards. Because of this move, Volkswagen is facing a staggering $18 billion in fines from the EPA.
This regrettable move has caused VW’s stock to flounder, tarnished the reputation of the company, and forced the resignation of CEO Martin Winterkorn.
But this movie will only bolster Leo’s already impressive producing resume, which features credits in films like The Wolf of Wall Street, Runner Runner, and Out of the Furnace.
As of now, no actors or directors have been revealed.
