Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio’s “Killers of the Flower Moon” has officially landed at Paramount Pictures, the studio’s chief Jim Gianopulos confirmed during a presentation to European exhibitors at CineEurope (via Deadline). The project marks the sixth collaboration between Scorsese and DiCaprio and their first since “The Wolf of Wall Street,” which earned Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and more.

“Killers of the Flower Moon” was confirmed as Scorsese and DiCaprio’s next project in October 2018, but momentum on the film stalled as the director continued to work in post-production on “The Irishman.” The movie, based on the bestselling book by David Grann, is set in 1920s Oklahoma and centers around the Osage Nation murders, in which members of the Native American tribe were murdered one by one after the group became rich off the oil found underneath their land. The murders attracted the attention of the newly created FBI, who set out to investigate the crimes.
