Despite being deep in the final stages of pre-production on The Irishman, acclaimed filmmaker Martin Scorsese is already planning his next feature, Killers of the Flower Moon. A true crime thriller set during the 1920s, the project centers around the newly-formed F.B.I. investigating the murders of the Osage nation in Oklahoma. Scorsese came on board the project a few months ago, alongside actor/producer Leonardo DiCaprio.
The film will be adapted by screenwriter Eric Roth (The Insider), from the novel by David Grann (The Lost City of Z). While Scorsese is busy shooting The Irishman this fall, his longtime production designer Dante Ferretti will prep Flower Moon. Location scouting is reportedly about to begin.
DiCaprio is, of course, expected to star in the film. This will mark his sixth leading role for Scorsese. The actor also has another true crime tale, The Devil in the White City, in the works with the filmmaker. Whether or not that one will still happen with this pairing is unclear at this time. After all, Scorsese has spoken recently about retiring soon, so there’s no way of knowing exactly how many films he has left in him. Regardless, the fact that we’ll be getting back-to-back features from him soon is a thrilling prospect.
