How will you watch the newest film with Leonardo DiCaprio in quarantine?
By: Margaret Wilson
Representatives of well-known director Martin Scorsese have been negotiating with «Apple» and «Netflix» about financing and showing a new film with Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro in the lead roles. It really seems that Titanic's star and Brad Pitt's famous colleague has some problems with promoting his popularity.
It is reported that «Paramount Pictures» agreed to the production of the big-budget film «Killers of the Flower Moon,» where DiCaprio and De Niro took part.
However, even before the economic crisis and the suspension of the film industry due to the coronavirus, the company expressed concern about the growing estimated cost of the film. It is reported that the production budget of the film has grown to more than $ 200 mln.
The management of «Paramount» allowed Scorsese to offer his project to other studios. Representatives of the director have already contacted «Apple», «Netflix» and «Universal Studios.» It is noted that, despite negotiations with new studios, «Paramount» can still reserve the right to produce the film, but it is also possible that an additional partner will participate in the production.
Scorsese's new film is an adaptation of David Grann's bestselling book of the same name, which tells about the murders of the Osage Indian tribe in Oklahoma in the early 20s of the last century, which became rich thanks to the discovery of oil on its territory.
