John Logan may reteam with Scorsese and DiCaprio on Kurosawa remake

John Logan may reteam with Scorsese and DiCaprio on Kurosawa remake

The Aviator team of Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, and openly gay screenwriter John Logan are in early negotiations to develop a remake of Akira Kurosawa's 1948 classic Drunken Angel for Warner Bros. DiCaprio is attached to star in the film, which would be produced by Barbara DeFina with Scorsese and DiCaprio through the latter's Appian Way production shingle. Logan would pen the project, which is being discussed as a potential directing vehicle for Scorsese. Kurosawa's film, which was set in postwar Japan, centered on a young criminal who is being treated for tuberculosis by an alcoholic doctor. Scorsese and DiCaprio next collaborate on The Departed, which is about to begin filming.
