While their last collaborative venture is set to release soon, the duo has teamed up again for Scorsese’s next movie, one which boasts to have the same level of suspense and mystery as the acclaimed thriller, Shutter Island.
A shipwreck thriller, it is already gaining considerable attention and has started to garner the Oscar buzz. Their legendary collaboration is already acclaimed and now as DiCaprio’s penchant for complex portrayal and Scorsese’s directorial prowess is set to meet again, fans can only expect a masterpiece is in the making, yet again.
Leonardo DiCaprio And Martin Scorsese To Unite Again
Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese can’t seem to slow down. Their soon-to-be-released movie, Killers of the Flower Moon is expected to release by October 20, this year. And just by watching the trailer, it doesn’t take much to figure out that it is yet again another blockbuster and potential Oscar winner.
While Killers of the Flower Moon hasn’t been released yet, it has been revealed that Scorsese and DiCaprio would be reuniting for another book-based project reportedly called The Wager. A shipwreck thriller. As confirmed by David Grann, the movie would be based on his book The Wager: A Tale Of Shipwreck, Mutiny, And Murder. Grann is the same writer whose book serves as the basis of Killers of the Flower Moon. The movie adaptation rights have already been purchased by Apple, and it would be based in the 1700s focusing on the British naval ship and crew.
A movie said to be the full package when it comes to suspense and thriller, fans cannot wait to witness the epic journey of the shipwrecked crew.
The Wager Would Have Shutter Island Level Suspense
A historical thriller based on a perilous voyage and its subsequent arrival at a desolate island off Patagonia’s coast, The Wager is a harrowing journey of the British naval ship. As the survivors battle shipwreck and grapple with the terrors of isolation, they are faced with even more violent times as they return to civilization.
A truly suspenseful and magnificent story, the book received critical acclaim and was labeled as a glorious yet harrowing tale of adventure. Not only does it contain the right elements of suspense, introduced at the right time, but Grann’s magnificent story writing is enough to make us jealous yet amazed.
Grann’s spectacular vision brought to life by Martin Scorsese’s brilliant directing abilities combined with Leonardo DiCaprio’s exceptional acting, the movie would be an epic success, if not a brilliant masterpiece.
Killers of the Flower Moon will be in theatres on October 20, while the release date for The Wager is yet to be revealed.
