I never doubted, for a second, that Martin Scorsese had a major influence on Leonardo DiCaprio becoming a more mature, better actor. Their daring run of films from 2000 to 2013 ("Gangs of New York," "The Aviator," "The Departed," "Shutter Island," and "The Wolf of Wall Street") will be looked back as a major moment in American movies. That's five films DiCaprio has made with Martin Scorsese. Scorsese and De Nro, the most legendary of actor/director partnerships, has had 8 films to its name.
Presenting Scorsese with the Robert Osborne Award at the TCM Classic Film Festival, DiCaprio stated that working with the director taught him a lot about film history, because it is damn near inescapabale when working with Scorsese:
“As a young actor standing beside him during the creative process of making a movie, I discovered that just like a painting, a sculpture, music or theater, film was just as essential, relevant, as a matter of fact, the most integral art form of our time,” DiCaprio said. “I felt I could truly own the term artist by working alongside him.”
“[There is] no one more knowledgeable, more committed, or draws more inspiration from the film art” than Scorsese. There is almost no aspect of his life, creative or personal, where he doesn’t reference the history of movies.” 
Scorsese and DiCaprio do have, at the moment, two projects brewing, “The Devil in the White City” and “Killers of the Flower Moon.” One of these will likely go into production after Scorsese is done editing, with editor-in-chief extraordinaire Thelma Schoonmaker of course, his upcoming ganster drama "The Irishman." The film is produced and distribtued by Netflix and currently aiming for a 2019 release date, even though, I hear, this December is still a possibility.
