This comes in hot as the director gears up for the release of his newest film The Irishman, this fall on Netflix. A film that I am definitely looking forward to as we see Scorsese, De Niro, and Pesci reunite for the first time since 1995’s Casino.
About the Film
The site shares a brief synopsis of the film:
“An adaptation of the non-fiction book by David Grann, Killers of the Flower Moon tells the true crime story of multiple murders of members of the Osage Indian tribe in 1920s Oklahoma that occurred after they found oil on their lands.”
A touchy subject, this film that will need to take great consideration of the cultures portrayed in the feature. Otherwise, they welcome an uproar over the mishandling of genuine horror.
But, as 2016’s Silence showed us, Scorsese is capable of treating a difficult topic with great care and the article goes on to show that he is taking the necessary precautions.
After a meeting with the Osage Principal Chief Geoffrey Standing Bear, he had this to say to Scorsese:
“We want to make sure your people have everything they need, in terms of Osage artisans, Osage language … those people are still here in the community and would love to help.”
So, with the security of knowing they will handle the subject properly, the anticipation builds as contracts are signed and budgets are written up.
Filming should begin at the very least during the middle of next year and Scorsese is looking to shoot in Osage County itself.
