Earlier this week, Variety wrote that DiCaprio is in talks to star as the leader of the Peoples Temple cult for a new MGM film, which he will also produce with Jennifer Davisson under their Appian Way banner. Jones and his cult orchestrated a mass murder-suicide in 1978 through the use of a beverage laced with cyanide, which left over 900 people dead. Jones’ body was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Jim Jones the rapper, meanwhile, is a decidedly different man, despite possessing the same name. But that didn’t stop some from imagining an alternate film project starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the Dipset member. In a post on Instagram, Jones shared one meme that photoshopped the Oscar-winner’s face onto the NYC rapper.
"I’m a have to show him how to throw up then gang Signs," he wrote alongside the meme on Instagram. "He gone need some gang tutoring lol. They said it would b Leo or Denzel I said Leo n me could pass for brothers. Don’t u see th resemblance. Box office Shit lol. Leo plays me in th new Jim Jones movie harlem we up."
