DiCaprio, De Niro & Scorsese Looking To Team Up For "Killers of the Flower Moon" Adaptation




I don't know what's changed with De Niro the last year or so, but, after more than 20 years not working with Scorsese, he now has two projects lined up with his legendary collaborating director. You don't see me complaining here. There's already "The Irishman" happening and now we're getting the word that an adaptation of David Grann's book "Killers of the Flower Moon" is also being considered.

Deadline:

"The book was snatched last year after a bidding war for $5 million by Imperative Entertainment and now the Eric Roth feature film adaptation of David Grann’s book Killers Of The Flower Moon: The Osage Murders And The Birth Of The FBI may end up with another few good men. We hear that Imperative is working right now to put together some A-listers for the big screen; first choices happen to be Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, and we hear the three are seriously considering it. Imperative partners Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas are producing." "Grann’s Killers Of The Flower Moon, which bows this week from Doubleday, tells the true crime story about multiple murders of members of the Osage Indian tribe in Oklahoma that occurred after they found oil on their lands. It is about conspiracy, greed and murder in the Indian nation — so bad the federal government had to step in. It also chronicles the rise of J. Edgar Hoover, who led the investigation into the murders and ended up making a name for himself."
