The movie will be an adaption of the true-crime thriller Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the Federal Bureau of Investigation by David Grann, who is also the author of The Lost City of Z. Scorsese and DiCaprio have been eyeing the project for months, and are developing it together with Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas, co-founders of Imperative Entertainment.
The forthcoming film could start production as early as spring of 2018, according to Scorsese's longtime production designer Dante Ferretti.
Written by "The Lost City of Z" author, David Grann, "Killers of the Flower Moon" is set in the 1920s and focuses on a string of murders done in Oklahoma after oil is discovered beneath the land of the Native American tribe, Osage Nation. Rights to Flower Moon were snapped up by Imperative a year ago for a reported Dollars 5 million, and a script has reportedly been drafted by veteran Oscar-winning scribe Eric Roth. Oscar-winning screenwriter Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) reportedly adapted the script.
