Development roundup

Fans of Harry Potter — and devotees of Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, in particular — can relax. All three actors, the stars of the first five films, are on board for the final two. I am particularly glad that Watson will be back, as some UK tabloids had been saying she might not reprise her role as the brainy Hermione.

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, who worked together last year on The Departed, may team up again for an film based on The Wolf of Wall Street. It’s a tell-all memoir by Jordan Belfort, a stockbroker who went to jail after refusing to become a federal informer in a 1990s securities fraud case. If the deal comes to fruition (a big if, considering how many other projects Scorsese has in the works), DiCaprio would star as Belfort. A word of advice to Scorsese: try someone other than Tom Hanks for the FBI agent who tries to get Belfort to cooperate.
