Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Hol­ly­wood star Leonardo Di Caprio (right) was the first choice to star in Now and Then (1995).

The screen­writer of the film, Mar­lene King made the rev­e­la­tion on the 20th an­niver­sary of the movie, re­ported Us mag­a­zine. “The one role that orig­i­nally was dif­fer­ent, Leonardo DiCaprio was go­ing to play the Viet­nam vet, but some­thing hap­pened and he had a con­flict. I know, it’s crazy!” King said.

The Mummy ac­tor Bren­dan Fraser went on to play the char­ac­ter. “Bren­dan was like a last minute swap for him. But Bren­dan did such a good job, so it was all good,” he said. Now and Then was based on King’s child­hood.
