On his Instagram account, the Hollywood actor shared a first shot of the future feature film of his favorite director. The film crew is currently filming in Oklahoma.
Eight years after the release of Wolf of Wall Street, Leonardo DiCaprio celebrates his reunion with Martin Scorsese by posting the first image of Killers of the Flower Moon. We can observe the emblematic actor of Titanic seated next to Lily Gladstone in a house from the 1920s. Ernest and Mollie Burkhart, the couple embodied on screen by the two actors, share an Osage meal, typical of the Indian tribe from which the heroine comes.
The new film from the legendary director of Taxi Driver is currently filming in Oklahoma. It is an adaptation of the eponymous novel by David Grann released in 2017. The book tells the FBI investigation into the assassination of Native Americans by settlers in the West just a century ago. Owners of land rich in petroleum, the natives had obtained a remuneration in exchange for the exploitation of the subsoils of the region. After the discovery of several murders, the FBI launched an investigation.
Expected for 2022, the film can already count on a prestigious distribution. Besides Leonardo DiCaprio and Lily Gladstone (the young woman charmed by Kristen Stewart in Some women), Robert De Niro and Jesse Plemons are also in the game. Like Martin Scorsese’s previous feature film The irishman, Killers of the Flower Moon will be released directly in streaming in France, this time on Apple TV +. The firm headed by Tim Cook has signed a long-term contract with the 78-year-old director, giving itself priority over all future projects for Sikelia Productions, the man-founded company behind Shutter island.
