"It is always interesting to make movies. Leonardo DiCaprio is often compared to Lenin in his youth. We have enough scenery and props to recreate the era of the revolution," Lenfilm spokesman Valeriy Karlov told Baltika FM.
On Sunday DiCaprio, who has recently received his sixth Oscar nomination for his role in 'The Revenant,' told German newspaper Welt on Sonntag that he would like to play Vladimir Putin in a film.
DiCaprio mentioned that he met the Russian President in 2010 at an international summit in St Petersburg about the conservation of tigers.
"Putin would be very, very interesting, I would like to play him very much," DiCaprio said.
"Lenin would also be an interesting role. I would also like to play Rasputin."
"I think there should be more films about Russian history, because Russia has so many stories that have an almost Shakespearean quality to them. That is immensely fascinating for an actor."
