Killers of the Flower Moon has finished production and Martin Scorsese is already preparing for the next film. He will once again find Leonardo DiCaprio there.
We can't wait to discover Martin Scorsese's new film, Killers of the Flower Moon , three years after the release of his The Irishmanon Netflix. This astonishing western, which promises unheard of, according to its screenwriter Eric Roth, was supposed to be released in November 2022 on Apple TV + according to the words of the screenwriter. Too bad for us, it will probably take a little more patience since 2023 will finally be the year of Scorsese's return and his reunion with Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. It is also the first time that the filmmaker will have his two favorite actors in one of his films at the same time.
Scorsese does not seem ready to stop his collaborations with partners to whom he is attached. His creative thirst does not dry up and his return in 2023 could well pave the way for a good number of new feature films from him and in familiar company. Indeed, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Leonardo Dicaprio has already joined the director's next film, also financed by Apple.
The Wager will be the title of this new collaboration between the actor and the filmmaker. And despite his strong criticism of the streaming model, Martin Scorsese seems satisfied with the funding he has obtained from Apple TV+ since it is on the platform that his future feature film will be broadcast. In addition to finding Dicaprio in front of his camera and staying at Apple, it will also be an adaptation of another novel by David Grann, the author of Killers of the Flower Moon. A less change of scenery for the filmmaker, therefore.
Oddly enough, the book in question, The Wager: A Tale of Shipwreck, Mutiny and Murder,n 'has not yet been released and is expected in US bookstores in April 2023. With the rights to the work immediately reclaimed by Apple, The Wagerby Martin Scorsese will therefore be an almost immediate adaptation of a book that has just hit the shelves and of which we do not yet know anything about the success or the quality.
The Wagerwill be a historical epic set in the 1740s. It will tell the story of 30 sailors arriving on the sides of Brazil and who are welcomed as heroes. There, they tell their epic story before it is discovered, months later, that the famous sailors were in fact only mutineers. A story that promises to be wild and epic in the words of the publisher, which tells a fascinating story of shipwreck on human behavior.
Martin Scorsese will sign with this film his seventh collaboration with Leonardo DiCaprio which will perhaps be followed by an eighth if his biopic adapting the life of President Franklin Roosevelt is confirmed one day.< /p>
