Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese Reunite
- Posted On:August 01, 2022
Leonardo DiCaprio is set to star in Martin Scorsese's new Naval drama 'The Wager’. This will mark the eighth film for the filmmaker and actor duo, with previous films including 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and 'The Aviator'.
This follows the duo’s latest film project called ‘Killers Of The Flower Moon', which is due to debut at the Cannes Film Festival in France in 2023.
'The Wager' is based on a non-fiction book by David Grann titled 'The Wager: A Tale Of Shipwreck, Mutiny, And Murder' and is set in the 1740s about two groups of sailors who were stranded in South America.
The first group of survivors were from a British ship and they were hailed heroes after turning on an island in Patagonia, but six months later another vessel was discovered off the coast of Chile with three men onboard who accused the other group of being mutineers. A trial was later set up to discover the truth about what happened.
We look forward to learning more about the film and its development.
