Leonardo DiCaprio once said he would “love to play” Vladimir Putin, but that doesn’t mean it’s actually happening anytime soon.

Contrary to reports in Russian media, The Revenant actor is not involved with an upcoming biopic about the Russian president from Knightsbridge Entertainment, The Wrap reports.

At least not yet: the company’s CEO has called DiCaprio a “dream choice” but says there’s been no outreach to the actor and that the film doesn’t even have a director yet.

DiCaprio met Putin in 2010 at a conference about Siberian tigers.
