Leo as The Aviator

09.05.2003

Unless you've been living under a rock (no offense to any of you who may have actually been trapped under a rock in the past), you know that Martin Scorcese has been hard at work lately on principal photography for his next epic tale, a Howard Hughes biopic called THE AVIATOR. Leonardo DiCaprio will star as Hughes along with Cate Blanchett, Kate Beckinsale, John C. Reilly, Alec Baldwin, Jude Law and Gwen Stefani, to name a few. One thing we haven't seen a whole lot of to date, are pictures from the film. But of course, why would I bring it up if I wasn't about to drop one or two of 'em on you, right? A pair of new pics, both showcasing the dashing DiCaprio all done up, surfaced online recently. The first one (which was taken on the set), of Leo in front of a trailer, is from the fansite Scorsesefilms.com, and the second (which, I believe, is the first official pick) popped-up on Coming Soon!

The film will follow Hughes, the eccentric billionaire industrialist and Hollywood film mogul, famous for romancing some of the world's most beautiful women. The drama recounts the years of his life from the late 1920s though the 1940s, an epoch when Hughes was directing and producing Hollywood movies and test flying innovative aircraft he designed and created. A daredevil pilot, the most famous flyer since Charles Lindbergh, Hughes became a major force in commercial aviation. He was a mythic figure in the America of his day, imbued with an aura of excitement, glamour and mystery.
