Casting for Martin Scorsese’s next film continues, with John Lithgow joining Jesse Plemons, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro in the movie.

Production continues on Martin Scorsese’s next film, Killers Of The Flower Moon, which he is making for Apple. Following his successful 2019 collaboration with Netflix on The Irishman, streaming companies continue to fund Martin Scorsese’s lavish dramas, happy to appropriate some of the cachet that comes from staging one of his epics.

Next up is Apple, who is working with the filmmaker on Killers Of The Flower Moon, a period drama starring Jesse Plemons, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lily Gladstone and Robert De Niro. More casting news has emerged for the project with the announcement that John Lithgow will be joining the film. He will be playing the role of a prosecutor in the adaptation of David Grann’s best-selling book which explores the serial murder of members of the oil-wealthy Osage Nation during the 1920s.

The plot for the film ‘takes place in 1920s Oklahoma and depicts a string of brutal murders of Osage Nation Native Americans, which came to be known as the Reign of Terror. The Osage Nation, who were the richest people per capita in the world, were killed one by one after oil was discovered on their land. As the death toll rose, the newly-created FBI took up the case and unraveled a chilling conspiracy and one of the most monstrous crimes in American history.’

Killers Of The Flower Moon has an expected budget of $200m and as yet, no release date has been set. We’ll keep you updated as we hear more.
