DiCaprio and Scorsese are doing their part to ensure “Killers of the Flower Moon” is representative of the Osage culture and the truth of what happened there at that time. They spoke not only with important cultural advisors and Osage leaders but with community members as well. DiCaprio and Scorsese encouraged the community to be honest and share their concerns with them, along with any stories they may have that can improve the film.
“Scorsese also spoke of his plan to include details of Osage culture to paint a full, truthful picture of the time and the people,” Osage News reports. “Scorsese and his team are currently working with advisors from the community, and plan to engage with more as the preparation work gets seriously underway.”
The film was originally set to go into production last year, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, things were put on hold.
The goal is for the release date to be in December of 2021—keep this on your radar!
