He’s been linked to numerous projects post-“Hugo” and now Martin Scorsese has made a decision.
Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio are committing to make “The Wolf of Wall Street” together at Red Granite Pictures with a start-of-shooting planned for August in New York reports Deadline.
The story is based on the Jordan Belfort memoir of his days as a hard partying, drug addicted stockbroker who was indicted in 1998 for security fraud and money laundering and served a 22-month federal prison stretch. Terence Winter penned the script.
Scorsese, DiCaprio, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Irwin Winkler, Jennifer Killoran, Alexandra Milchan, Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland will produce. No domestic distributor is yet set.
