As Leo is very particular about his directors, his involvement in the project will ultimately depend on who is chosen to call the shots.

'Prisoners' is described as 'Mystic River' meets 'Taken,' as a small-town carpenter who takes matters into his own hands after his daughter and her friend are kidnapped. The Alcon Entertainment duo are set to produce with Kira Davis and Adam Kolbrenner, with Warner Brothers handling distribution.

Leonardo DiCaprio's latest thriller, 'Shutter Island,' made over $40 million this weekend and marks Leo's best box-office opener to date. The film is the actor's fourth collaboration with director Martin Scorsese.
