Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet will soon share the big screen for the first time since Titanic.

According to Variety, the actors begin filming Revolutionary Road in the summer. The movie will be directed by Winslet’s husband, British filmmaker Sam Mendes.

The film marks the first time the two have worked together since 1997’s Titanic raked in more than a billion dollars worldwide.

But they have had thriving careers ever since, and both were nominated for Oscars this year: DiCaprio for Blood Diamond, Winslet for Little Children.

Revolutionary Road is based on a 1961 Richard Yates novel about a suburban couple and their struggle with the pressure to conform, Variety reports.

It will be the first time Winslet has been directed by husband Mendes, who won a best director Oscar in 2000 for his feature debut, American Beauty. The couple, who wed in 2003, have a son, Joe, 3. Winslet also has a daughter, Mia, 6, from her previous marriage to assistant director James Threapleton.
