Four more actors added to Martin Scorsese's Killers of the Flower Moon
William Belleau and Louis Cancelmi are the two newest actors on the project, while Grammy-winning musicians Jason Isbell and Sturgill Simpson are also set to appear
Four new actors — William Belleau, Louis Cancelmi, Jason Isbell and Sturgill Simpson — have been added to the cast of Martin Scorsese's upcoming crime drama Killers Of The Flower Moon.
The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, along with Jesse Plemons, Lily Gladstone, Tantoo Cardinal, Cara Jade Myers, JaNae Collins and Jillian Dion.
Based on David Grann's 2017 bestseller, Killers of the Flower Moon is set in 1920s Oklahoma, and centres on the Osage Nation murders, in which members of the Native American tribe were murdered one by one after the group became rich off the oil found underneath their land. As the death toll rose, the newly created FBI took up the case to uncover a chilling conspiracy and one of the most monstrous crimes in American history.
Earlier it was reported that the film added four indigenous actors Tantoo Cardinal, Cara Jade Myers, JaNae Collins and Jillian Dion to play key roles.
Now, according to The Wrap, four new actors will join the cast. William Belleau, best known for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and Louis Cancelmi from The Irishman are the two newest actors on the project, while Grammy-winning musicians, Jason Isbell and Sturgill Simpson are also set to appear in the film.
Scorsese is producing and directing the project with a script written by Eric Roth. Killers of the Flower Moon is financed by Apple Studios, after Paramount Pictures decided to sell it over increasing costs. Scorsese will also produce for Apple Studios and Imperative Entertainment, alongside Dan Friedkin, Bradley Thomas and DiCaprio's Appian Way Productions.
