Dujardin in talks for ‘Wolf of Wall Street’

Oscar winner eyeing Swiss banker role in Scorsese pic

Hot off his Oscar-winning turn in “The Artist,” French thesp Jean Dujardin is in talks to join Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street.”

Red Granite is financing, and principals Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland will produce along with Scorsese, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Irwin Winkler, Alexandra Milchan, DiCaprio and his Appian Way partner Jennifer Killoran.

Terence Winter (“Boardwalk Empire”) adapted Jordan Belfort’s memoirs, which chronicle his rise and fall on Wall Street, along with his hard-partying lifestyle and tumultuous personal life.

Dujardin is in talks to play Jean-Jacques Handali, a suave Swiss banker involved in laundering illicit funds for the protag’s firm.

Kyle Chandler is set to co-star as the FBI agent who built the case against Belfort and took him down.

He will soon be seen in the Weinstein Co.’s comedy “The Players,” and he’s also attached to star alongside Tim Roth in Eric Rochant’s French spy thriller “Mobius.”

Dujardin signed with WME back in January after winning a Golden Globe and a SAG award.
