According to a press release, Tatanka Means (I Know This Much Is True), Michael Abbott Jr. (Loving), Pat Healy (Bad Education) and Scott Shepherd (Bridge of Spies) will join Leonardo DiCaprio in the highly anticipated film.
Set in 1920s Oklahoma, Killers Of The Flower Moon depicts the serial murder of members of the oil-wealthy Osage Nation, a string of brutal crimes that came to be known as the Reign of Terror.
Means will play John Wren and Abbot will play Frank Smith. Healy will play John Burger (a federal agent who works with Jesse Plemons’ Tom White on the murders) and Shepherd will play Bryan Burkhart, the brother of DiCaprio’s Ernest Burkhart.
Killers Of The Flower Moon has been adding cast members left and right to its roster. Last week, Deadline reported that William Belleau (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse), Louis Cancelmi (The Irishman) and Grammy-winning singers/songwriters Jason Isbell and Sturgill Simpson had joined the project.
Killers Of The Flower Moon is the Scorsese’s first feature film since The Irishman and his first with DiCaprio since The Wolf of Wall Street.
The film marks DiCaprio and Scorsese’s seventh collaboration together after working on multiple Oscar-nominated and winning films including Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, Shutter Island, The Wolf of Wall Street and the 2015 short film The Audition.
It will also be the tenth partnership between the director and Robert De Niro after Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, New York, New York, Raging Bull, The King of Comedy, Goodfellas, Cape Fear, Casino and The Irishman.
Scorsese is directing Killers Of The Flower Moon from a script written by Oscar-winner Eric Roth (Mank) and is producing alongside Imperative Entertainment’s Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas and Appian Way Productions.
