Background and info on Killers of the Flower Moon
Killers of the Flower Moon is based on the non-fiction book Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann, who also wrote the novel The Sunken City of Z. The book was first published in 2017. This was first published in 2017. That same year, director Martin Scorsese expressed interest in filming the work.
However, it would be some time before the production became concrete. It was not until April 2021 that the first take of Killers of the Flower Moon was made. Paramount Pictures and Apple TV+ joined forces in order to raise the huge budget of 200 million US dollars.
After The Irishman, which was made under the Netflix umbrella, the bestseller adaptation marks the second collaboration between Martin Scorsese and a streaming service.
Originally, Leonardo DiCaprio was supposed to take on the role of FBI agent Tom White, which was written especially for him. In the end, however, he opted for a different part, that of Ernest Burkart, the nephew of the antagonist William Hale, portrayed by Robert De Niro. Jesse Plemons was then hired to play Tom White. (MH)
