“In 1920s Oklahoma, the Osage Nation were the richest people per capita in the world, after oil was discovered under their land. And then they were murdered, one by one. As the death toll rose, the newly created FBI took up the case and unraveled a chilling conspiracy and one of the most monstrous crimes in American history.”
The film was penned by Eric Roth, and it’s being produced by Scorsese alongside Imperative Entertainment’s Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas, along with Sikelia Productions’ Emma Tillinger Koskoff and DiCaprio’s Appian Way Productions.
