The fast talking former trader who ended up in jail, revealed he was Down Under to discuss the coming movie based on his 2008 memoir, starring DiCaprio as Belfort and directed by Martin Scorsese.
"Leo flew back to the States and I am meeting him when he gets back," Belfort said.
"He is almost done with The Great Gatsby and then my movie is next and to go into production early next year. Leo and Brad Pitt were in a bidding war and it was going up and up and up and I sold it to Leo because he was able to get Scorsese involved."
Based on his salacious autobiography, Belfort revealed DiCaprio's former girlfriend Blake Lively was tipped to play his now ex wife "The Duchess" in the movie. "I don't think that is happening any more, but I heard rumblings they might get Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the British actress who would be the right fit."
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley snubs Victoria's Secret show November 7, 2011
With a Hollywood film and an A-list boyfriend, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has turned her back on the modelling job that propelled her to stardom.
The 24-year-old model turned-actress, who is dating Hollywood star Jason Statham, has confirmed that she will not take part in this month's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show alongside her fellow 'Angels' because of a diary clash, reported Daily Mail online. It is the first time since her 2006 debut that she has missed America's famous catwalk extravaganza, which is being filmed in New York.
"Rosie is focused on perfecting her acting. She doesn't want to be known as just a model. She has been taking acting classes, but she hasn't filmed anything since 'Transformers: Dark Of The Moon'," a source said. "Rosie was approached to participate in the annual Victoria's Secret show, but unfortunately couldn't make the dates work due to a big campaign shoot. She remains close to the VS family," her spokeswoman said.
