Variety reports that Scorsese and DiCaprio are developing a film adaptation of the true-crime thriller Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Shooting is expected to begin next spring. The project is based on the bestselling book by David Grann.

Rights to the book were purchased by film studio Imperative past year for a reported $5 million. Think about it, the list includes Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, Shutter Island, and The Wolf of Wall Street.
