Dicaprio Interested In Robotech Movie?

Rumor has it that Leonardo DiCaprio has been approached about starring in Warner Bros. long-gestating Robotech movie. What lends some credence to the rumor is that DiCaprio is old pals with Tobey Maguire, who is producing the Robotech movie and starred opposite Leo in The Great Gatsby. Latino-Review claims Leo "wants to do" Robotech enough that he turned down a role in Star Wars: Episode VII to pursue it.
