Martin Scorsese is set to bring two of his most frequent collaborators together for his next directorial effort, with reports circulating that Robert De Niro has joined Leonardo DiCaprio in the cast of Killers of the Flower Moon.
Should De Niro sign on the dotted line, it means that he'll be acting alongside Leonardo DiCaprio for the upcoming project, which is based on the non-fiction novel of the same name by author David Grann. In the 2017 true crime book published by Doubleday, Grann recounts the story of multiple murders of members of the Osage Indian tribe in 1920s Oklahoma that occurred after they found oil on their lands.
Sources said that an offer is imminent and that, subject to a final budget being approved, they are clearing schedules for a movie that should be in production by the middle of next year.
