Euro-AICN sets the record straight on that Leo Sci-fi flick

Father Geek here with an offical correction to that LEO rumor from the other day. Keep in mind that our Euro-offices had this info from two (2) different sources including the BBC before they went with it and even then it was tagged as just rumor. Its the nature of this business that from time to time you'll have to deal in a certain amount of bullshit. We're all sorry this one slipped by...

Ozymandias sent us a message with a link about this rumour of Leonardo in Romania... as many of you thought, this was of course not true... so here's the real story on that "Librium" thing... check : right here It reads:

Romanian Admits DiCaprio Deception


- A Romanian film company said Wednesday its announcement that Leonardo DiCaprio would make a film here was just wishful thinking.

Romania's Castel Film Studios had announced Monday that DiCaprio would star in a science-fiction movie, ``Librium,'' to be shot in Bucharest in August.

DiCaprio's agents, Ken Sunshine Consultants Inc., denied it Tuesday and Castel Film Studies backed off its previous statement.

``It is common in the movie business to air well-known names before the casting is actually being done ... and DiCaprio's name was aired as a wish of ours, not as a certainty,'' Castel spokeswoman Calina Pirotici said.

Castel had used DiCaprio's name while seeking permission from the Romanian Chamber of Deputies to use the parliament building for location shots, Pirotici said.

DiCaprio's alleged travel to Romania was on the front pages of most newspapers here Tuesday.
