Scorsese's Killers Of The Flower Moon Adds Four Cast Members

Casting continues on Martin Scorsese's upcoming Apple Studios film.


Martin Scorsese might have a lot to say about streaming, but he knows a green light when he sees one, and so the director is working on his next film, Killers of the Flower Moon, for Apple Studios. Now, Scorsese has added four new members to the film's cast alongside stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, Lily Gladstone, and Jesse Plemons, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The new actors joining the cast are Tatanka Means (I Know This Much is True), Michael Abbott Jr. (The Death of Dick Long), Pat Healy (The Post), and Scott Shepherd (Bridge of Spies).

Killers of the Flower Moon, announced for production last summer, is based on the book of the same name, which recounts a string of murders in Osage County, Oklahoma in the 1920s in a plot to take over Osage-owned oil deposits for profit, which are then investigated by the just-formed FBI.

Scorsese is directing a screenplay by Eric Roth based on the non-fiction book, authored by David Grann. Scorsese is also producing the film, along with Imperative Entertainment and Appian Way Productions.
