solo wasn't saying that as a criticism and that's a fairly minority opinion even if I happen to agree with you

I mean it’s not considered like top 3 in his filmography for sure. But I do think it’s viewed as kind of a modern classic. Everyone still talks about this movie and loves it. I don’t see how solo wasn’t being negative though.

it was just a fun observation. how could it be a critique i mean im a malick fan for petes sake

People said this when Wolf was announced and it ended up being one of his best films and a modern classic.

The book was snatched last year after a bidding war for $5 million by Imperative Entertainment and now the Eric Roth feature film adaptation of David Grann’s book Killers Of The Flower Moon: The Osage Murders And The Birth Of The FBI may end up with another few good men. We hear that Imperative is working right now to put together some A-listers for the big screen; first choices happen to be Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, and we hear the three are seriously considering it. Imperative partners Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas are producing.

Scorsese and De Niro have been huddling on The Irishman at Netflix, but there’s no completed deal yet.

Grann’s Killers Of The Flower Moon, which bows this week from Doubleday, tells the true crime story about multiple murders of members of the Osage Indian tribe in Oklahoma that occurred after they found oil on their lands. It is about conspiracy, greed and murder in the Indian nation — so bad the federal government had to step in. It also chronicles the rise of J. Edgar Hoover, who led the investigation into the murders and ended up making a name for himself.

No one involved would comment.

Scorsese and DiCaprio have worked together multiple times before with Gangs of New York, The Aviator, Shutter Island, The Departed and The Wolf Of Wall Street. In addition, they are both developing The Devil In The White City, also based on a critically acclaimed book. De Niro and Scorsese, of course, have teamed on such films as Goodfellas, Casino, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, The King Of Comedy and The Godfather Part II.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese’s Sixth Movie Is Officially ‘Killers of the Flower Moon,’ Filming Starts Summer 2019

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio are officially reuniting on the upcoming historical murder mystery “Killers of the Flower Moon.” Both men have been attached to the project for some time, but Variety has confirmed the project is Scorsese’s next directorial effort. Production is set to kick off in summer 2019. The film is written by Eric Roth, an Oscar winner for “Forrest Gump.”

“Killers of the Flower Moon” is based on The New York Times best-selling book by David Grann. The story is set in 1920s Oklahoma and centers around the Osage Nation murders, in which members of the Native American tribe were murdered one by one after the group became rich off the oil found underneath their land. The murders attracted the attention of the newly created FBI, who set out to investigate the crimes.
