Leonardo DiCaprio wants to direct.
The 35-year-old actor – who has been nominated for three Oscars in the last 16 years – confesses he is eager to move away from appearing in front of the camera and now wants to work behind it as a director.
He said: “Directing is something that will come down the line. It is something I am looking forward to doing – I just have to find the right vehicle. Someday I will get behind something; that would be fun.”
Although his best known work has been with filmmaker Martin Scorsese, Leonardo admits he has a great love of Christopher Nolan, who directed him in ‘Inception’.
He told HollywoodLife.com: “I chose this role because Chris Nolan is a visionary. He has been able to pull off some difficult plot structures with ‘Memento’ and his work with ‘The Dark Knight’. This will be his tour de force as far as directing is concerned.”
The Hollywood hunk previously confessed he believes his latest movie to be a “high concept” project which needs to be seen to be understood.
He said: “This is a high concept film, and it's a film that's working on a multitude of levels simultaneously. And it's kind of a hard film to pitch. It's more of a film that you really need to experience.
