Default The Wolf of Wall Street (Scorsese + Di Caprio)

http://www.deadline.com/2012/03/mart...fully-funding/

Quote:
Martin Scorsese And Leonardo DiCaprio Committing To ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’ For August; Red Granite Fully Funding

By MIKE FLEMING

EXCLUSIVE: Director Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio are committing to make The Wolf of Wall Street their fifth collaboration. The film is based on the Jordan Belfort memoir of his days as a hard partying, drug addicted stockbroker who was indicted in 1998 for security fraud and money laundering and served a 22-month federal prison stretch. Shooting will begin August in New York.

The film will be fully financed by Red Granite Pictures, which acquired The Wolf Of Wall Street at the last Cannes Film Festival after Danny Dimbort, Christian Mercuri and Joe Gatta formed the international sales company. Red Granite got involved early with the just released comedy Friends With Kids, but this really is an opportunity to be put on the map, much the way GK Films did with Gangs of New York and The Aviator. The film will be produced by Scorsese and his production head Emma Tillinger Koskoff as well as Irwin Winkler, DiCaprio and his Appian Way partner Jennifer Killoran, and Alexandra Milchan, who long developed the project before becoming an executive at New Regency. Red Granite chairman/CEO Riza Aziz and vice chairman Joey McFarland will be involved in producing capacities as well. There is no timetable to set a domestic distributor, but Red Granite will certainly sell territories at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.

Both Scorsese and DiCaprio were in the mix for several big feature projects, but they always wanted to make this film together and finally felt the time was right. The script is by Terence Winter, the exec producer of The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire, and he will polish his script before going into production. Belfort came of age on Wall Street in the ’80s and early ’90s, and his success was undermined by the decadence fueled by the endless money he made in New York at that time. Though a period piece, this tale is all about extravant excess and that certainly resonates with those who mistrust of Wall Street excess after the 2008 financial collapse that was also based on greed.

For Scorsese, this will be his fifth time directing DiCaprio, after Gangs of New York, The Aviator, the Oscar-winning The Departed and Shutter Island. DiCaprio has a ways to go to catch up with the eight seminal films that Scorsese directed with Robert De Niro, but Scorsese and DiCaprio certainly bring out the best in each other. Scorsese is coming off his Oscar-nominated 3D film Hugo, and DiCaprio most recently wrapped the title role in the Baz Luhrmann-directed The Great Gatsby.

Silence had Daniel Day Lewis, Benicio del Toro and Gael Garcia Bernal right?

This sounds really good but I hope they change the title.

Everytime I hear it, I think it sounds like a Seth Graham-Smith mashup of Oliver Stone's Wall Street and werewolves.

We live in a new era where generic titles rein supreme. Because of that, I hope that they don't change the title to "The Wolf".

It'll totally be "The Wolf", you watch.

Just like The Invention of Hugo Cabret being reduced to the lifeless "Hugo."

I still haven't forgiven Weinstein for changing Cogan's Trade to... Killing Them Softly. Yuck.

Heh, that is a good point.

They should also make a movie about Goldman Sachs and call it The Vampire Squid of Wall Street.

It'll probably happen. But re-cast with Dicaprio instead.

He probably won t. I think he will only work with DiCaprio from now on. The De Niro times are over.

Whoa, DiCaprio really is everywhere, isn't he? Between this, Django Unchained, and The Great Gatsby, he seems to have a hand in every huge movie coming in these two years.

I think it's good that Jonah Hill is continuing with his share of dramatic roles, I wouldn't nominate him for his performance in Moneyball myself but he handled himself better than I expected and teaming up with Scorsese would be interesting to see.
