On 6 October 2023, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro’s Killers of the Flower Moon, directed by Martin Scorsese, will release in Indian theatres before making its Apple TV Plus streaming debut.
The film, which also stars Lily Gladstone and Jesse Plemons, is based on David Grann’s best-selling novel of the same name, which was published in the New York Times.
The movie is directed by Martin Scorsese from a script he co-wrote with Eric Roth. Scorsese usually works on movies with the two leads, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro.
“Oil delivered a fortune to the Osage Nation at the turn of the 20th century, and they quickly became some of the richest people in the world. White outsiders were attracted to these Native Americans’ wealth right away, and they used their influence to manipulate, extort, and steal as much Osage money as they could before turning to murder, according to the official synopsis released by Apple Studios.
Described as an epic western murder drama, Killers of the Flower Moon tells its tale through the unlikely relationship between Ernest Burkhart (DiCaprio) and Mollie Kyle (Gladstone).
The role of William Hale, the uncle of Leonardo DiCaprio’s Burkhart, is played by Robert De Niro, who previously appeared alongside DiCaprio in the 1993 film This Boy’s Life.
Tom White, played by Plemons, is a former Texas Ranger turned FBI agent who is dispatched to Oklahoma to look into the killings of Osage Indian Nation tribe members. In the 2019 picture The Irishman, directed by Scorsese, the actor previously collaborated with the director.
Apple Studios produced Killers of the Flower Moon along with Imperative Entertainment, Sikelia Productions, and Appian Way.
Producers include Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, Dan Friedkin, Bradley Thomas, and Daniel Lupi.
DiCaprio, Rick Yorn, Adam Sommer, Marianne Bower, Lisa Frechette, John Atwood, Shea Kammer, and Niels Juul are among the project’s executive producers.
American crime novel Killers of the Flower Moon focuses more on who didn’t commit the crime than on who did. It concerns extensive collusion. In the end, it’s about a long overdue reckoning with our past.
