Leonardo DiCaprio to Star in Jason Bourne-Type Action Thriller "Satori"

Posted: October 4th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Leonardo DiCaprio to Star in Jason Bourne-Type Action Thriller "Satori"Submit Comment
Warner Bros has acquired Don Winslow's best-selling novel "Satori" to develop it into a Jason Bourne-type action thriller that has Leonardo DiCaprio attached to star. Shane Salerno (Shaft, Aliens vs Predator 2) will write the script with Winslow.

DiCaprio will play Nicholai Hel, raised in Japan by a martial arts expert and genius at Go, the complex chess-like Japanese game. The master, a Japanese general, passes on all his secrets and the student repays him by murdering his mentor as an act of devotion; the military leader would have been disgraced and killed as a war criminal.

For that act, Hel is thrown in solitary confinement in a Tokyo prison and tortured for three years. He is finally sprung by the CIA after agreeing to assassinate the Soviet commissioner to China. Hel is trained for the task by a beautiful French woman he falls in love with. Though he now sees a happy ending to the dangerous assignment, Hel is betrayed by his backers and, using his Go skills for strategy, makes his way through Vietnam hunted by American, Chinese, Russian and French intelligence agencies as well as a Corsican mob and Vietnamese criminal syndicate.

I'm sure someone will comment that the book is better than this description.

Di Caprio playing a real tough, bourne-like guy? That's new. I wonder who'll kick his ass.

@johnnyb; same here ! I read 3 times, i can't understand sh*t as it makes no sense.

Di Caprio kills his master who transmitted all his secrets ? Who kills who damn it?

"He's tortured for 3 years in a japanese prison." You're certainly no longer an expert in anything ! So, so much for being a martial expert.

As for the corsican mob, you've got to be kidding. Yes, they are doing their funny business ont their tiny island (Corsica) and the farest they'll go will be up to Marseille (which i strongly advise you to never visit that bloody place) ! So, i can't see them crossing any order border then the french one.

Besides, have you noticed that Di Caprio is always playing somebody who is an expert in something !

And let me guess: Marion Cotillard is the beautiful french woman !

Conclusion: this has to be re-written already !

This is not Don Winslow novel Satori, but Trevanian's Shibumi:
