#1. The Latest Killers Of The Flower Moon News
According to Killers of the Flower Moon updates, David Grann, the author of the novel, has visited the Scorcese film's set several times and is extremely pleased with the director's interpretation of the book. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Grann complimented every aspect of Scorcese's adaptation, including the engagement of the Osage Nation, the acting of the cast, and Scorcese's overall respect for historical accuracy. This is good news because the source material covers a wide range of delicate subjects. According to Grann's further remarks, "What I was struck by from Scorsese to the actors was the level of commitment and how much research they did to understand the parts and understand the history."
Besides, the massive runtime for the next Scorcese film is revealed in other Killers of the Flower Moon updates. According to some rumors, the movie is close to 4 hours long. As it stands, Killers of the Flower Moon has a whopping runtime of 3 hours and 26 minutes. Just three minutes short of Scorcese's longest picture, The Irishman, which ran for 3 hours and 29 minutes. This one has displaced Wolf of Wall Street from second place on the list of his longest productions.
#2. Killers Of The Flower Moon Is Confirmed
According to Killers of the Flower Moon updates, the film was first bought out for production back in 2016 when it was announced that Martin Scorcese, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Robert De Niro would be working on the adaptation. Scorcese chose to tackle The Irishman first, delaying the start of filming from 2018 to 2019. Another delay in production occurred, this time as a result of the COVID-19 epidemic. After battling it out over funding, Apple TV+ agreed to co-finance and co-distribute the movie with Paramount. After numerous delays, Killers of the Flower Moon's principal photography finally started in April 2021.

#5. Killers Of The Flower Moon Story Details
According to updates for Killers of the Flower Moon, the film will largely adhere to the book. The movie is based on the nonfiction book Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann. In the book, Grann investigates a series of murders of wealthy Osage people that took place in Osage County, Oklahoma, in the early 1920s after oil deposits were discovered in their land. As the Osage people prepared to receive the wealth to which they were legally entitled from sales of the oil deposits, the administrators of the land had other ideas.
These people had a history of hostility toward the Osage people and thought that by getting rid of the Osages, who they saw as the "middle man," they could more easily maximize their oil earnings. William Hale was one of the masterminds behind the plan to murder the Osage people, and his nephew, Ernest Burkhart, was a key player. Scorcese reportedly has been working closely with the Osage people since the inception of Eric Roth's script. In addition, the production was praised by writer David Grann. This should give audiences high hopes that Scorcese's version of events should be both respectful and faithful to history.
#6. Killers Of The Flower Moon Trailer
It's surprising that Killers of the Flower Moon updates don't include the trailer, considering filming for Leonardo DiCaprio's next movie wrapped quite a long time ago. However, it will make its world premiere in May 2023 at the Cannes Film Festival, where it'll probably face tough competition for the Palme d'Or. Consequently, it is likely that a Killers of the Flower Moon trailer will drop sooner rather than later. As more information on the next Scorcese movie becomes available, stay tuned.
