Leonardo DiCaprio Shirtless Los Angeles, July 29 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Titanic star Leonardo DiCaprio is all set to exit from Mel Gibson’s upcoming movie. There was some speculation that he took the extreme step in the wake of the recent Gibson-and-Oksana’s scandal.

Sources close to the star allege that there is no way the actor is going to be a part of the movie in which Mel Gibson is calling the shots. Apparently he was furious of the profanity-laced calls, which Mel Gibson made to his ex-girlfriend Oksana. In view of the violent threats, a judge recently ordered Mel Gibson to surrender all his firearms.

The movie in question was a Viking flick, and it was the first time that Mel Gibson and Leonardo DiCaprio were going to work together. There were also reports that Leonardo didn’t want to drag his name into mud by being associated with such an actor-director, who is infamous right now for her weird and violent ways, with the mother of his 7 months old daughter Lucia.

Earlier Leonardo was very excited about doing the movie, as he was interested in Vikings a lot. But now it seems the movie is going to be delayed as well because the main actor in the movie would have to be re-cast.
