Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese Can’t Quit Each Other

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese are just one of those great film duos. Like Tom Hanks and Steven Speilberg, Bill Murray and Wes Anderson, or Johnny Depp and Tim Burton (if you’re feeling vulgar), Leo and Marty do some of their best work together. Think about it, the list includes  Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, Shutter Island, and The Wolf of Wall Street. Those are probably some of my favorite films from either of those guys that isn’t Goodfellas or Blood Diamond (what can I say? I really like Blood Diamond. Fight me.). The dynamic duo has announced their latest team up.

The title of the new Leo/Marty joint has a mouthful of a title: Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI. That sounds right up both of their alleys. Leo already played a duly appointed federal mah-shal in Shutter Island. It’s based on a bestselling book by David Grann, who also wrote The Lost City of Z, which was made into a critical darling film this year.

The movie naturally follows the early days of the FBI in the 1920s. The investigation has the feds in pursuit of a killer targeting Osage nation members to get the oil under their land. Sounds perfect right? It’s probably not going to break any profanity records, but I’ll probably go see it, especially if Leo does a stupid accent.
