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.
