Few stars in Hollywood today are as recognizable to audiences as Leonardo DiCaprio. With a remarkable film career that began with an appearance in a not-so-memorable “Critters” sequel in 1991, DiCaprio quickly rose to career dominance before the end of the decade with “Romeo & Juliet” in 1996, and “Titanic” in 1997. Since the turn of the millennium, he’s been working alongside some of the biggest names in the business — and under some of the most respected directors in the game — including Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Christopher Nolan, and Quentin Tarantino. But despite this, it turns out that 2024 is looking decidedly quiet for the actor.
While a hiatus for DiCaprio might sound like big news, it turns out that taking a year or more off from acting isn’t anything new for the actor. Following his Oscar-winning performance in 2015’s “The Revenant,” the actor took a four-year break before returning in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” alongside Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie. That’s not to say that DiCaprio doesn’t have anything in the works, however. On the acting side, a trio of films seems to be on the docket for him, with a film adaptation of the novel “The Wager” and a biopic on the infamous cult leader Jim Jones among them, and there’s plenty more in the works with DiCaprio as a producer.
