Back in April, Deadline reported that screenwriter Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, The Insider), would be adapting the novel Killers of The Flower Moon by David Glenn for a feature adaptation.

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, greed and 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.

Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Robert De Niro were potentially climbing onboard. Although, since then there hasn’t much of any confirmation.

We’ve spotted a production listing for the film which is looking to begin filming sometime during January in Oklahoma.

With Martin and Robert currently shooting The Irishman in New York City, it’s unknown if they’ll be the ones in front/behind the camera. However, we could still see Leonardio DiCaprio take the lead.
