Leo DiCaprio is all set to play his namesake in an upcoming biopic of Leonardo da Vinci.

The biography in question was written by Walter Isaacson, who wrote the biography of Steve Jobs that eventually became the Danny Boyle-directed, Aaron Sorkin-scripted, Michael Fassbender-starring film of the same name.

Paramount and Universal are in a ferocious seven-figure bidding battle tonight to acquire the Walter Isaacson book Leonardo da Vinci, with Appian Way in the center of this to produce the film as a potential star vehicle for DiCaprio.

According to his IMDB, Leonardo DiCaprio is also set to star in the upcoming thriller The Black Hand, about a police officer seeking "justice against a ruthless Italian-American gang in NY". His last film The Revenant showed him in the role of frontiersman Hugh Glass, which earned him his first best actor Oscar.

In writing Leonardo Da Vinci, Isaacson reportedly used Da Vinci's notebooks to weave together a narrative thread marrying his incredible imagination with his celebrated artistic and scientific works. DiCaprio got his first name because his mother was looking at da Vinci paintings at the Uffizi the first time she felt him kicking.
