Collider has reported Martin Scorsese has his next project ready to rock. It will be an adaptation of Killers Of The Flower Moon, a non-fictional novel based on the murders of an Indian tribe in America
Scorsese has looked far and wide to find the perfect actors to suit the characters for Killers Of The Flower Moon. After much deliberation, and countless, exhausting auditions, it looks like he is going to take a chance. He has found his leading men. This may surprise a lot of you…are you ready? Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert DeNiro have been cast in Martin Scorsese’s Killers Of The Flower Moon.
All joking aside, Killers Of The Flower Moon really does sound like a grim tale. These events actually happened. It has been described as a serial killer film. It will tell the true story of The Osage Tribe from Oklahoma. A tribe of Indians that were murdered in horrific ways because oil lay beneath their land.
No other cast has yet been confirmed. We can expect to see some big names being added in the future
So, this also means that we will have to wait longer for the H.H Holmes movie. I was hoping Scorsese’s next project would be an adaptation of Erik Larson’s The Devil In The White City. Dicaprio’s production company purchased the rights to the film. Then Scorsese came on board as director with DiCaprio starring as serial killer Dr H.H Holmes. Believe it or not, I have been following The Devil In White City since 2013. Every time Scorsese or Dicaprio announce their next film, I get my hopes up. Then my hopes get shot to shit as the project keeps getting put on the back-burner. But at least we are still getting a serial killer flick. I can’t complain.
More to follow on Killers Of The Flower Moon and hopefully, The Devil In The White City as the news is announced.
As always, thanks for reading. Have an awesome day wherever you are.
