    The "Titanic" star has signed on to star in "Prisoners" which will be shot in Derby.

    Hollywood heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio is coming to Connecticut -- eventually.

    The actor has signed on for the lead role in the movie “Prisoners,” according to the New Haven Register.
     
    Now ladies, don’t clear you calendars just yet to catch a glimpse of “Leo” for yourself. As of right now, the city of Derby is still waiting for word on when production will start on the film.
     
    Word is that the prep work for the film is done, and locations have been picked out for certain scenes. The hold up appears to be negotiations with stars and directors who have delayed the project, according to the New Haven Register.
     
    Allison Ewart, a staff production coordinator with Alcon Entertainment, said Monday that the movie is on “indefinite hold” right now.
     
    “We don’t have a production date yet,” she said to the New Haven Register. “We hope to pick it back up later this year or early next year.
     
    The movie calls for winter scenes, so that has reportedly prompted speculation that too much more of a delay will push production back until next year.
     
    “Prisoners” is about two families who are neighbors whose two youngest daughters go missing, and the ensuing search for them.
