Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese to return for their sixth film, Killers of the Flower Moon



Famous Actor-Director Duo of Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese are officially reteaming for their next FBI Drama, Killers of the Flower Moon. Based on the New York Time best-seller book by David Grann, Martin Scorsese is set to direct and produce the feature adaptation of “Killers of the Flower Moon”. Screenwriter Eric Roth is hired to write the screenplay for the film.

The original book is set in the early 1920s Oklahoma State which centres around the murders of Osage people after big oil deposits were discovered beneath their land. Officially, Imperative Entertainment acquired the rights of the book in 2016 and Scorsese quickly attached to the project since 2016, finally set to direct and produce alongside Imperative Entertainment’s Dan Friedkin, Bradley Thomas, Sikelia Productions’ Emma Tillinger Koskoff, and Appian Way Productions.

Official Statement by Martin Scorsese:

“When I read David Grann’s book, I immediately started seeing it — the people, the settings, the action — and I knew that I had to make it into a movie,” said Scorsese. “I’m so excited to be working with Eric Roth and reuniting with Leo DiCaprio to bring this truly unsettling American story to the screen.”

DiCaprio has appeared for total of 5 films with Scorsese in which Oscar Nominated film “The Wolf of Wall Street” is their most recent team up. The pair will mark their sixth project together, after working on Gangs of New York (2002), The Aviator (2004), The Departed (2006), Shutter Island (2010) and The Wolf of Wall Street (2013). Well, DiCaprio’s role is yet to be announced but this is going to awesome as the actor-director Duo had some badass movies together.

For the time being, DiCaprio is currently working on Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A time in Hollywood alongside Brat Pitt which is likely to release next year.
