Killers of the Flower Moon (Martin Scorsese, 2021)

Killers of the Flower Moon is an excellent book. The murders that occurred in Osage County are perfect material for Scorsese and it hasn't lost any relevance in today's world. It an absolutely chilling text. Can't wait to see what he does with it.

If this story sounds familiar, it's one of the focuses of the FBI Story with James Stewart

I read an article about them circling around this about a year ago. Seemed like De Niro was attached as well.

LQ's family lives in west Texas so her affinity for that region of the country is sky high, and she is obsessed with this book. This will surely be a day one viewing for our clan as a result

My dad told me Scorsese had been seen scouting in Oklahoma lately, Indiewire confirms by digging up Scorsese's Instagram, which is a thing that exists

He's got one of the more charming Instagram accounts in that it's almost identical to any other family man his age's Instagram account except there's no weird patriotism stuff and, well, he's Martin Scorsese

Per DiCaprio, this starts filming in March.

Scorsese describes the film to Cahiers as his first western, says that most of the roles besides DiCaprio's and De Niro's will be played by Native Americans.
Martin Scorsese wrote:It's so interesting to think about the mentality that leads us to (the murders). The history of civilization goes back to Mesopotamia. The Hittites are invaded by another people, they disappear and later, it is said that they have been assimilated, or rather, absorbed. (…) It is fascinating to see this mentality which is reproduced in other cultures, through two world wars. And which is therefore timeless, I think. Finally, this is the film that we are going to try to make.

Very interesting...
With the current technology it's a simple matter to attach Mr. De Niro's face to Mr. DiCaprio's body and vice versa, an effect so seamlessly achieved that the viewer only gradually realizes it as the deeper thematic implications emerge organically within the story

De Niro was cast as Hale according to that, so I guess it's safe to assume some de-aging effects again. The guy was in his late 40s during the investigation.
