According to Deadline, Martin Scorsese could be set to team with his regular A-list collaborators Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro on an adaptation of David Grann’s book Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, which is in development at Imperative Entertainment.
The book “tells 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.”
Scorsese is also set to reunite with De Niro for the long-gestating crime drama The Irishman, which also has Joe Pesci and Al Pacino attached.
