Leonardo DiCaprio has signed on to star in Mel Gibson’s as-of-yet untitled period drama about Viking culture.

William Monahan is writing the script, which Gibson, Graham King, and Tim Headington will all produce for GK Films and Icon Productions. So far, no other casting or the specifics of the story have been announced, though Variety.com reports that it will be in the same vein as Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” and “Apocalypto”. The project has no distributor yet.

Shooting on the project is expected to begin in the fall of 2010.
