The latest Untitled Deadpool Column has a review of the script. It's very positive with only minor spoilers. Here's a taste:
Frank's (Leonardo DiCaprio) exploits, if you are unfamiliar with the real life events, are extraordinary, but perhaps what is most extraordinary about them is how ordinary they are. No grand schemes, no complex plans... Frank gets an idea, studies, buys some equipment, and then gets away with economic murder on almost every page of the script. It's his humanity as a con man that gets you. He isn't above us all, and everything he does seems like something we should have thought of ourselves. When he thinks he's caught with his pants down, he just recycles dialogue from TV shows, for God's sake. This is a con man we all can love.
You can read the entire review here.

It looks like Steven Spielberg will be making this movie his next project. He is very close to a decision that would have him take the reins of this biopic starring Leonardo DiCaprio. The film is based on the true story of Frank Abagnale Jr. He was the youngest man ever to end up on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list. His memoirs serve as the basis for the film.
