Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro together on a White Screen. The rumours have been going on for a while, but now it seems to be happening: not only Leonardo DiCaprio but also Robert De Niro will play in the new film by director and producer Martin Scorsese.
The production of the film, Killers of the Flower Moon, should start next year, according to the reports.
Killers of the Flower Moon is on the murder of tribal members of the Osage Indians in the 1920s.
Oil was found on the territory of the tribe, making the Indians rich.
Several members of the tribe were murdered at the same time.
The Bureau of Investigation, the predecessor of the FBI, had to resolve the matter.
The director knows both Leonardo and Robert well. He recently made the Mafia film The Irishman with the latter,
which will premiere in New York in September.
In total, the two have already worked together ten times.
Scorsese and DiCaprio are no strangers to each other: they collaborated on five feature films,
including The Departed and Shutter Island.
The script of Killers of the Flower Moon is written by Eric Roth and is based on a novel by David Grann.
