That’s right ladies, our beloved Leois rumored to be cast as the 13thPresident of Princeton University and the 28thPresident of the United States.
Rumors began to soar when Warner Bros. signed with DiCaprio’s film company, Appian Way Productions, to secure the rights to the film adaption of the recently released biography "Wilson."The biography of the president was written by former Board of Trustees member A. Scott Berg '71. Berg also won a Pulitzer Prize for his 1998 biography of Charles Lindbergh.
Thomas Woodrow Wilson was a member of the Princeton class of 1879 and was President of the University between 1902 and 1910. He is best known for being elected President of the United States in 1912 and guiding America through World War I. Twenty-five years after Wilson’s death in 1924, the University's Board of Trustees named the School of Public and International Affairs after him; years later we still refer to the institution as "Woody Woo."
Though it has not been specified which aspect of Wilson’s life will be chronicled in the film, let us all pray that they shoot a few scenes on campus and make allour 'Jack-I’m-flying' dreams come true.
After all, campus experienced its share of celebrities filming on campus last year when Justin Timberlake and Tina Fey visited for Runner, Runner and Admission, respectively.
