Leonardo DiCaprio smiles as he arrives at a launch party for Qingdao Oriental Movie Metropolis of Wanda Group in China.

Leonardo DiCaprio is set to produce and potentially star in a film adaptation of the upcoming crime novel “Blood on the Snow” by Norwegian author Jo Nesbo.

The book will be published next spring and is being written under Nesbo’s pseudonym Tom Johansson. Its plot revolves around a hit man who falls for the woman he’s been assigned to assassinate and who just so happens to be his boss’s wife. Its sequel, “More Blood on the Water,” is set to come out in the spring of 2015, Variety reports.

The acquisition deal is being negotiated by Warner Brothers Films, which acquired the rights to A. Scott Berg’s biography of Woodrow Wilson for DiCaprio in mid-September.
