Martin Scorsese’s ‘Killers of The Flower Moon’ Eyeing Spring Shoot In Oklahoma – Adds ‘Casino/Shutter Island’ Production Designer
Well, it looks like we know when and where Martin Scorsese could be filming his next film Killers of The Flower Moon which will star Leonardo DiCaprio.
The true crime story about multiple murders of members of the Osage Indian tribe in Oklahoma that occurred after they found oil on their lands. It is about conspiracy, greedand murder in the Indian nation — so bad the federal government had to step in. It also chronicles the rise of J. Edgar Hoover, who led the investigation into the murders and ended up making a name for himself.
We’ve learned that filming is expected to begin sometime next spring in Oklahoma after a year of delays on the film’s production start.
They’ve also brought on veteran and multiple Oscar-winning Italian production designer Dante Ferretti to the project. Dante has been working alongside Martin for decades on films such as Silence, Hugo, Shutter Island, The Aviator, Gangs of New York, Bringing Out The Head, and Casino.
Martin recently shot the Robert De Niro gangster film The Irishman for Netflix and DiCaprio is currently filming Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood for Sony Pictures in Los Angeles.
A release date has yet to be announced.
