Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese are collaborating once again, this time on an adaptation of David Grann’s 2017 book, Killers of the Flower Moon, The Hollywood Reporter discloses. Set in 1920s Oklahoma, the book tells the story of the Osage Nation and newly-discovered oil beneath their land. Once outsiders got wind of the treasure, deaths began to mount up, and the recently-formed FBI gradually uncovered one of the most heinous crimes in American history.
Scorsese has been tapped to direct the feature film, as DiCaprio will then star. Eric Roth is writing the adaptation, which will see Scorsese produce alongside Imperative Entertainment’s Dan Friedkin, Bradley Thomas, Sikelia Productions’ Emma Tillinger Koskoff, and DiCaprio’s Appian Way Productions.
“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. “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.”
