According to Variety, DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson have signed up to produce Paramount's film about the Volkswagen scandal through their production company, Appian Way. The film currently doesn't have any actors or director attached.
Paramount bought the film rights to Jack Ewing's upcoming book which details the Volkswagen clean diesel scandal in which the company placed illegal software in their clean diesel cars that could tell when a car was being tested for fuel emissions and would turn the controls off to cheat the test to pass the EPA standards. Volkswagen is currently facing $18 billion in fines from the U.S. EPA.
