Killers of the Flower Moon is an Apple Original film, joining the streamer’s increased production with likes Ridley Scott’s next biopic on Napoleon Bonaparte, Kitbag, with Joaquin Phoenix. Previous films released by Apple TV Plus include the war drama directed by Tom Hanks Doggy style and that of Sofia Coppola On the rocks with Bill Murray and Rashida Jones.
This is the first time that Scorsese has occupied the director’s chair since 2019 Irish for Netflix and shows an ongoing partnership between Scorsese and the major streaming platforms. Oscar-winning screenwriter Eric Roth, who has written films including Forrest Gump, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and A star is born, wrote the screenplay.
DiCaprio can next be seen in Don’t Look Up, a dark comedy starring Jennfier Lawrence, Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill and Timothée Chalamet, which will arrive on Netflix later this year. De Niro’s next project is also a period piece – it is set to appear in David O. Russell’s new film, which also has an all-star cast including Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, Rami Malek and John David Washington. Both actors have previously worked with Scorsese – DiCaprio on New York gangs and the wolf of Wall Street, to name just two, while De Niro has starred in Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Casino and many more.
