Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio bought himself an island, estimated to $2,4 million. The island, named Blackadore Caye, is located off the coast of Belize and measures 104 acres.

Leo wants to transforme it into a resort and he's thinking to use renewable energy resources to fuel his island. So, practically, this will be an eco-friendly island. The actor, 33, is a well-known ecologist.

Leonardo DiCaprio's production company, Appian Way, will produce and develop a feature film adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's classic dystopian novel "Cat's Cradle", in collaboration with manager-producer Hillard Elkins/ Elkins Entertainment.

Also, the actor is in negotiations with Warner Bros to star in the thriller "The Blood Diamond," an African adventure set in Sierra Leone around 1999, a period when the region was in the midst of a civil war.

DiCaprio will play a juggler specialized in blood diamonds, stones used to finance rebellions, privateers and terrorists.

DiCaprio is currently shooting for The Departed, directed by Martin Scorsese. The Blood Diamond would reportedly shoot early next year.
