According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Leonardo DiCaprio is in talks to portray Billy Milligan, the first person to use multiple personality disorder as a legal defense.

The film, titled The Crowded Room, is based on Daniel Keyes' award-winning 1981 book, The Minds of Billy Milligan, an account of Milligan's court trial in the late 1970s.
