Killers of the Flower Moon- (Scorsese/DiCaprio/De Niro) Apple TV+ (date TBD)
the tug of war over one of the highest profile films in Hollywood is about over...Apple will win the derby for the Martin Scorsese directed film Killers Of The Flower Moon, with Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro in the lead roles..the film will get a wide theatrical release through Paramount before it becomes the biggest film title so far on Apple’s streaming service...this is landmark stuff, with Scorsese joining together his two most important acting collaborators, who haven’t worked together meaningfully in a film since 'This Boy’s Life'
the movie is based on the David Grann book 'Killers Of The Flower Moon: The Osage Murders And The Birth Of The FBI'...the book is a mystery about a series of murders of wealthy Osage Native Americans in Oklahoma in the early 1920s, after oil deposits were discovered beneath their land...the ensuing investigation established the FBI and was a pivotal moment in the evolution of America from its frontier era...
just like The Irishman (Netflix) this looks like another mega expensive Scorsese film getting financed by a streaming platform
