Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet will both star in DreamWorks' new drama "Revolutionary Road", the first since 1997's "Titanic."

The phenomenal onscreen couple is back, at last. Yes, and will stand together again in one frame for the first time after their appearance in James Cameron's 1997 mega-hit work "Titanic."

Variety has reported that the twosome has signed on to be the leadstars in "", which will be produced under DreamWorks Pictures banner. Winslet's husband Sam Mendes is on duty to direct as well as produce alongside John N. Hart, Scott Rudin, and Bobby Cohen in association with BBC Films.

Presenting a theme of post-war disillusionment, the picture is actually an adaptation of Richard Yates' acclaimed 1961 novel of the same title, which centers on a seemingly happy suburban couple in the mid-1950s who find themselves caught between their true desires and the pressure to conform -- with explosive consequences. Filming will begin this summer using an adapted screenplay by "" scribe Justin Haythe.
