Leonardo DiCaprio is set to star in and produce the movie Live By Night, based on Dennis Lehane's new novel of the same name.

It tells the story of gangsters who run from Cuba to Boston during prohibition.

This won't be the first time DiCaprio will star in a Lehane adaptation — he previously worked on Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island, reports contactmusic.com.

The actor is also developing Satori, the bestseller by Don Winslow, in which he not only hopes to act but also produce.
