Rep: Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio certainly has his plate full right now. He hasn't even started promoting Shutter Island yet and is already busy on another movie set. But it's not The Third Man like other media outlets have been reporting.

"He isn't involved with that project," DiCaprio's rep tells Hollyscoop exclusively in regards to reports that he's set to star in The Third Man alongside good pal Tobey Maguire.

The 1949 Carol Reed remake centers on novelist Holly Martins as he arrives in Vienna to discover that the friend that invited him, Harry Lime, has died in a traffic accident. Orson Welles starred in the original.

Leo may not be 'The Third Man' but he's the main man in Christopher Nolan's new sci-fi thriller Inception. The Hollywood heartthrob is currently shooting the movie in Los Angeles alongside Canadian actress Ellen Page.
