Scorsese and DiCaprio reunite for The Wolf of Wall Street

Martin Scorsese and current-muse Leonardo DiCaprio are set to reunite for the film adaptation of Jordan Belfort’s autobiographical best-seller The Wolf of Wall Street.

According to Vulture, formerly-attached director Ridley Scott and studio Warner Bros parted way with the project, allowing Scorsese to jump aboard and direct the script by his Boardwalk Empire co-producer Terence Winter.

DiCaprio will star as Belfort, a drug/alcohol/sex-addicted broker, who went from multi-millionaire to convict within the span of a decade.

Although Vulture claim TWOWS will film in the coming months, Indiewire are saying Scorsese will first helm his long-gestating adaptation of the Shusaku Endo novel Silence.

Daniel Day-Lewis, Benicio Del Toro and Gael Garcia Bernal are all attached to star in the tale about 17th century Jesuit priests.

I’m sure we’ll get a better idea of dates and shooting schedules once Scorsese finishes production on Hugo Cabret.

Discuss: Happy to see Scorsese and DiCaprio reteam once again?
