Fresh off the success of his biggest weekend opener ever, Shutter Island, Leonardo DiCaprio is eying a role as a carpenter in one of his next films. You know who else was a carpenter? Jesus.

Coincidence?

Deadline Hollywood is reporting that DiCaprio is keen on starring in Prisoners, based on the Black List script from Aaron Guzikowski. "Prisoners has a Mystic River-meets-Taken storyline, and DiCaprio wants to play a small-town carpenter who takes matters into his own hands when his daughter and her friend are kidnapped."

Sounds like DiCaprio's big "GIVE ME BACK MY DAUGHTER," moment, but he's particular about his directors. Anton Fuqua (Training Day) was at one time attached to the project. DiCaprio's participation on the project, however, is contingent upon who Alcon Entertainment brings in as the new director, as DiCaprio doesn't work with hacks. I bet Jesus couldn't say that?
