Squid Game Creator Names Leonardo DiCaprio as His Dream Casting for Future Seasons

Leonardo DiCaprio has taken on some major roles throughout his career, but none as dangerous as what Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk has in mind for him.

During a Friday press conference to celebrate Squid Game's monumental six Emmy victories out of 14 nominations, the show creator told reporters that while the second

season will be set in Korea, a potential third season could see the inclusion of Hollywood actors if it gets the green light. And if that happens, Hwang wants Leo to tag along for

Netflix's most-watched series of all time. "Leonardo DiCaprio did say he's a big fan of Squid Game," he said, per Deadline. "So maybe if time or chances allow, we can ask

him to join the games. We have already joked about that." Hollywood stars in season two are "not in my plan," Hwang said, but that could "probably change" in future

seasons. Hwang even shared, per Deadline, that the budget for season two is larger than what he was working with for the show's original outing, and that while he has the games

for season two locked in, he hoped there wouldn't be any leaks to keep the suspense in store for viewers. "If I get too drunk and babble, I ask you to suffocate me to stop

me from giving spoilers," he joked. RELATED: Squid Game Star Lee Jung-jae Makes Emmys History with Best Actor in a Drama Series Win With the first season of the

series ending in an "open-ended way," Hwang told The Hollywood Reporter in October 2021 that a few points of the plot have still yet to be addressed, hinting at what could come

for a follow-up season. One of those plot points that he hoped to touch on is the story of the police officer and his brother the Front Man.
