Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese to collaborate again

Leonardo Di Caprio and director Martin Scorsese are working on another flick

Martin Scorsese is a very busy man lately.

Scorsese, who is now in the middle of pre-production on The Irishman, the Netflix original film that will detail the life of mob hitman Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran with its hefty $100 million production budget, is hoping to begin shooting Killers of the Flower Moon in the spring of next year in Oklahoma, according to his longtime production designer Dante Ferretti.

The new film is still in the early stages, so there is no word yet on when it will be released. Based on a novel of the same name by David Grann, Killers Of The Flower Moon tells the story of the FBI's first major case: a series of racially-charged murders tied to the discovery of oil on land owned by the Osage Indian nation.

Imperative has the rights to this movie which cost a reported $5 million to get, and the script is being now looked over by Eric Roth of Forrest Gump and Benjamin Button fame.

David Grann's Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the Federal Bureau of Investigation digs deep into a string of mysterious deaths that happened on the Osage reservation in the early 20th century.


It's a phrase thrown around a lot but Scorsese and DiCaprio are a dynamic duo. Like Tom Hanks and Steven Speilberg, Bill Murray and Wes Anderson, or Johnny Depp and Tim Burton (if you're feeling vulgar), Leo and Marty do some of their best work together.

And right alongside him for the venture will be Leonardo DiCaprio, the pair of them having already worked on hits like Shutter Island, The Aviator and The Wolf of Wall Street.

However, this project will be shelved for the time being so that Scorsese can turn his full attention to The Irishman.

It's not clear whether Scorsese has made much progress on The Devil in the White City screenplay, but together with Killers of the Flower Moon, it will take the longtime friends' movie collaborations to seven.
