Leonardo DiCaprio, Martin Scorsese to reunite in big-screen adaptation of Killers of the Flower Moon

Published: 25th October 2018

Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio and filmmaker Martin Scorsese are reuniting for the film Killers Of The Flower Moon. Eric Roth is penning the script for the film, which is a feature adaptation of David Grann's book of the same name.

"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 film," said Scorsese.

He added, "I'm so excited to be working with Eric Roth and reuniting with Leonardo DiCaprio to bring this truly unsettling American story to the screen."

The story is set in 1920s Oklahoma and revolves around the Osage Nation, who were the richest people per capita in the world, after oil was discovered under their land and then they were murdered, one by one. As the death toll rose, the newly created FBI took up the case and unravelled a chilling conspiracy and one of the most monstrous crimes in American history.

The project will mark the sixth film that DiCaprio and Scorsese have worked on together. The duo most recently teamed up for the Oscar-nominated The Wolf of Wall Street.

DiCaprio is currently filming Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, while Scorsese is busy with post-production of his Netflix drama The Irishman.
