Leonardo DiCaprio will team up with director Martin Scorsese once again for their new projected adapting ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ into a feature film…
Sometimes reality is more terrifying than fiction.
That’s why Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio is teaming up with director Martin Scorsese once again to adapt David Grann’s book titled ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’.
The true crime/real life horror story took place in Oklahoma during the 1920 when the Osage Nation discover oil under their land that would be worth millions but then suddenly members of the tribe begin being murdered. As the death toll rises for the Osage Nation, the newly formed Federal Bureau of Investigation gets involved and discovers a shocking conspiracy covered in blood.
The adaptation of Grann’s novel will be written by Eric Roth, who also wrote the recently released ‘A Star Is Born’ as well as Oscar winning films such as ‘The Insider’ and ‘Forrest Gump’.
“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,” Scorsese said in a statement released on Wednesday.
“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.”
This will be the sixth time that DiCaprio and Scorsese have teamed together on a project as actor and director. Several of their past efforts have been rewarded with a ton of praise and awards including ‘Gangs of New York’ and ‘The Departed’.
Most recently, DiCaprio starred in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’, which Scorsese directed based on the real life exploits of stock swindler Jordan Belfort.
Now they will team up again to tell one of the most macabre tales in the history of the United States.
