Leo DiCaprio Gets His Pong On
Josh Grossberg wrote:Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't just have game. He's got Pac-Man, Pitfall, Breakout, Space Invadersand, oh yeah, Chuck E. Cheese's.

He has signed on to star in Atari, a biopic on Nolan Bushnell, the inventor of the famed home video game console, per the Hollywood Reporter. After building Atari to an international juggernaut, Bushnell was forced out, only to have a second act as the founder of the Chuck E. Cheese's Pizza chain.

DiCaprio, 33, will also produce Atari through his production company, Appian Way, for Paramount.

Aside from Atari, the star recently wrapped the Ridley Scott CIA thriller House of Lies, due out in October, and is also set to reteam with his Titanic love, Kate Winslet, in Sam Mendes' drama Revolutionary Road.
