Brad Ingelsby is set to write the upcoming screenplay Sleeper for Warner Brothers. According to Variety, this adaptation of the DC/Wildstorm comic is set to star Leonardo DiCaprio and will be directed by Ridley Scott.
Sleeper centers on an operative whose fusion with an alien artifact makes him impervious to pain and allows him to pass it on to others through skin contact. He is placed undercover in a villainous organization by an intelligence agency and falls for a member of the group named Miss Misery. While DiCaprio replaces the previously attached Tom Cruise, Sam Raimi is still attached to the project as a producer.
At this time, the film does not have a concrete start date.
