Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio to team up for Killers of the Flower Moon

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio are going to team up for their sixth movie together, with Killers of the Flower Moon.

The new film is based on the book, Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, by American journalist David Grann.

The book investigates a series of murders of wealthy Osage people that took place in Osage County, Oklahoma in the early 1920s — after big oil deposits were discovered beneath their land. Officially, the count of the murdered full-blood wealthy Osage native Americans reaches at least 20, but Grann suspects that hundreds more may have been killed because of their ties to oil. The book reports cattleman William Hale as the mastermind standing behind the murders and presents detailed evidence.

Eric Roth (Forrest Gump) is writing the script. Scorsese will direct and co-produce the film, but DiCaprio’s role is yet to be announced. He may play one of the FBI investigators, but there is also a chance he could be playing Hale.

“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.”

Scorsese and DiCaprio previously worked together on Gangs of New York (2002), The Aviator (2004), The Departed (2006), Shutter Island (2010) and The Wolf of Wall Street (2013).
