Do you think the Oscar—winning Leonardo DiCaprio will be suitable for the role of the leader of the world proletariat? Many users of the world Wide web are so sure of this that the fake about the filming of the historical drama "Lenin" by Hollywood was taken at face value.
The information that Steven Spielberg is making a film about Vladimir Ilyich Lenin has stirred up online communities of moviegoers. Interest in the painting was fueled by posters featuring famous historical figures performed by American stars.
Posters with the heroes of the new movie were made so professionally that many movie lovers rushed to look for the picture in the list of film premieres of 2019. Of course, they were disappointed — neither Steven Spielberg, Tim Burton, or even Quentin Tarantino were not going to make a film about Lenin. Also, there is no information about Spielberg and the mentioned actors working on this movie masterpiece in their plans until 2021.
It became obvious that another fake was promoted on the network. But, as it turned out, the fake was based on a very real interview that Leonardo DiCaprio gave to the German millstone Welt back in 2016. The actor, either jokingly or seriously, told reporters that he sees in the history of Russia a fertile ground for cinematographers and that he is averse to playing someone from historical figures, for example Rasputin, Lenin or Vladimir Putin.
The press secretary of Lenfilm, Valery Karpov, immediately reacted to this statement, saying that the studio was ready to remove DiCaprio in the role of Lenin. Karpov also added that to implement a similar project in It will be easier for Russia than overseas, since all the scenery and props necessary for filming are available.
It was a joke or the truth — it is not known for sure, but the St. Petersburg communists instantly reacted to the funny news. Representatives of the Communist Party said they were outraged by the encroachment of the bourgeois actor on the bright image of the leader and, as a sign of their protest, burned a photo of DiCaprio on one of the squares of St. Petersburg.
The creator of the fake with the new film turned out to be Russian journalist Ivan Safronov, who posted online photos of actors in the images of revolutionaries back in 2017. At the same time, it was clearly indicated under the images that they were fake and had nothing to do with reality. But who is interested in these notes to the old post, if you can play millions of gullible users.
