Contrary to various reports trickling through the web today, representatives of Leonardo DiCaprio and DreamWorks Pictures confirm to EW that the Revolutionary Road star is not set to star in DreamWorks’ Button Man. The violent thriller — based on a British comic strip — was one of the 17 titles DreamWorks brought with it in its divorce from Paramount Pictures, and remains in active development with screenwriter Hillary Seitz (Eagle Eye) attached, according to a DreamWorks rep. Although it is unclear how DiCaprio’s name got linked to the film, the rumor appears to have originated from a listing in Production Weekly.
