That happens in the movie Killers Of The Flower Moon, after a novel by David Grann. The recordings for the film will start in the summer of 2019.
Killers Of The Flower Moon is about the murder of members of the Indian tribe Osage. The murder took place in Oklahoma in the twenties of the last century. The discovery of oil on the territory of the Osage Indians ensured that the tribe members became very rich. Through legislation the white Americans tried to take a piece of that and that caused many Osage Indians to be killed.
After reading the novel by Grann, Martin Scorsese became enthusiastic to make a film of it. “I immediately imagined the people, the locations and the action and knew that I had to film the book”, says the director. Eric Roth will write the script for the film. He previously had success with Forrest Gump.
The director is currently working on The Irishman. Robert De Niro and Al Pacino play in the gangster film made for Netflix. Leo has just finished the last scenes of the Quentin Tarentino film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
The two previously worked together on blockbusters like The Wolf or Wall Street, The Aviator, The Departed, Gangs of New York and Shutter Island.
