Man, these guys love working together and considering what they've done together so far, we might be in for a treat. While it has been rumored for awhile, it was officially announced today that Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio have committed to "The Wolf of Wall Street" and it will most likely begin filming in August. Scorsese will direct and DiCaprio will start in the titular role as Jordan Belfort – also known as, the 'Wolf of Wall Street'. The screenplay that was adapted by Terence Winter, is based on the memoir by Belfort, and will detail his proclaimed bad-ass life on Wall Street during the 90s. If it's anything like the book, we can expect to see DiCaprio's character rack up millions of dollars, develop a serious drug and hooker addiction and then (go figure) lose it all when he gets convicted for shady trading practices.
Sounds like a compelling story. It will be especially satisfactory if the guy is actually held accountable for screwing with people's lives the way he did. It's also always good news when Scorsese works with one of his "go to actors." like DiCaprio. However, as many times as these two have collaborated, they still have three more films to beat Scorsese's impressive eight films completed with Robert De Niro.
