Martin Scorsese’s next movie, Killers of the Flower Moon, was originally meant to start shooting this past March. Now, the film has set new production dates after delaying due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the total period of delay will end up being about 11 months. Osage News is reporting that the movie, which will film in Osage County, Oklahoma, is now set to begin filming in February 2021.
According to Geoffrey Standing Bear, the principal chief of Osage, the film will be shot over 16 weeks. The film is expected to create a lot of work for local residents. Chad Renfro and Addie Roanhorse are serving as Osage Nation ambassadors for the film, which is an adaptation of David Grann’s non-fiction book of the same name.
“With safety for all being of greatest concern, once the industry protocol has been established and it is safe to embark on this important project, they will reach back out to us,” Renfro said in a statement.
The film is set to star Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro in starring roles. DiCaprio has previously worked with Scorsese on The Departed, Shutter Island, and The Wolf of Wall Street, whereas this will be De Niro and Scorsese’s 10th film together.
Another (much smaller) part will be played by the auction winner who scored a walk-on role in the film.
The movie, which will release on Apple TV+, is said to have a budget of $200 million–which could still be lower than what it cost to make The Irishman.
