‘Body of Lies’ reunites DiCaprio, Crowe

Movie: "Body of Lies"

When: Opening Friday at local theaters

Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Russell Crowe

Director: Ridley Scott

The story: Before a CIA operative (DiCaprio) can infiltrate a major terrorist leader’s network, he must win the approval of a veteran CIA colleague (Crowe) — and their counterpart in the Middle East.

The buzz: After bombing out in 2006 with "A Good Year," Crowe and Scott hope to revisit a better year — 2000, when they collaborated on the Oscar-winning "Gladiator." It’s also reunion time for DiCaprio and Crowe; back in 1995, when DiCaprio was still a kid and Crowe was a promising Down Under actor making his Hollywood debut, they played rival gunslingers in "The Quick and the Dead."
