Dicaprio third man?

Is it time for a Leonardo Dicaprio/ Tobey Maguire team up? Well, besides that time they were on the television show, PARENTHOOD. Maybe.

It's being said that the two leading men will star in a remake of the 1949 classic THE THIRD MAN.

For those not familiar with the movie, here's a plot summary: After arriving in post-WWII Vienna, Holly Martins learns that his friend Harry Lime, who invited him, was involved in a strange car accident. Martin starts to investigate his friend's death by talking to friends and associates to find out what really happened. On this journey, he finds out more than he bargained for.

Apparently, the remake is being written by Steven Knight (EASTERN PROMISES) and will be released by Studio Canal. The film is about to go out for bidding, and it's going to be rather heated, despite the fact that no director is attached yet.

There's no word yet on who will be which character, but one of them gets to fill the shoes of Orson Welles who played Harry Lime. I'm pretty sure DiCaprio got that role, but I've been fooled before. This could turn out to be a great remake but who should direct it? Or should it be remade at all?

Extra Tidbit: If you haven't seen the movie yet, check out the trailer.
