2013 Guide Analysis: "Filmmaker Martin Scorsese, and his muse of the past decade Leonardo DiCaprio have been trying to make this adaptation of Jordan Belfort's memoir since at least 2008. However, disputes over the rights prevented them from pursuing the project and they opted instead to work on "Shutter Island". Then, at one point, Ridley Scott was slated to direct until he too bowed out. It took time and some lucky scheduling, but at last the stars aligned early last year and production moved forward.
Boasting a script by Emmy-winning "Sopranos" writer-producer Terence Winter, the story follows New York stockbroker Belfort, a flashy, drug-abusing, hooker-hiring, model-marrying prick sent to jail for participating in a massive securities fraud in the 1990s. Said fraud involving corruption on Wall Street, the corporate banking world and mob infiltration.
Marking DiCaprio and Scorsese's fifth collaboration together, this $100 million drama will be Scorsese's second film to be shot digitally after "Hugo". It boasts a fairly incredible cast including Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin, Jon Favreau, Rob Reiner, Joanna Lumley, Spike Jonze, Jon Bernthal and Kyle Chandler. Wrapping up filming the other week, an end of year release is being targeted with this already shaping up to be a potentially serious awards contender."
