Leonardo DiCaprio And Martin Scorsese Join Hands For Killers Of The Flower Moon
It’s time for a blest reunion. Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese are re-teaming up to star in the feature adaptation of Killers of the Flower Moon. The presentation is based on a New York bestseller by David Grann. Imperative Entertainment has locked the veterans to star in the venture together. The 75-year-old Martin Scorsese will serve as the director for the forthcoming FBI drama. Whereas, Leonardo DiCaprio will feature as the titular character in the flick. Prevailing sources have cited that the shoot will go on floors early next year. However, the premiere time of this big-ticket show is not out yet.
The Plot Of Killers Of The Flower Moon
Oscar Winner Eric Roth has been brought onboard to pen down the film. This big-screen version of Killers of the Flower Moon is set in 1920s Oklahoma. The plot centers around the Osage Nation murders. A deadly massacre, 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. The murders attracted the attention of the newly created FBI which, therefore, set out to investigate the crimes. Imperative Entertainment had acquired the rights of the book, back in 2016. And since then, Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese have been interested in joining the bandwagon to adapt the masterpiece.

Martin Scorsese said:
“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.”
The 43-year-old Leonardo DiCaprio also could not contain the excitement about his new project. He expressed that for him, Killers of the Flower Moon was a truly unsettling American tale. In addition to this, he mentioned his delight over his reunion with Martin Scorsese and Eric Roth.
