Posted by & filed under SFW, The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio are joining creative forces for the fifth time to make “The Wolf of Wall Street.” The film adaptation of Jordan Belfort’s memoir will begin shooting in August.

Terence Winter, who was the executive producer of “Boardwalk Empire” and The Sopranos,” is behind the script, while the film’s production team includes Scorsese, DiCaprio, Jennifer Killoran, Alexandra Milchan, and Red Granite Pictures’ Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland. Red Granite will also finance the film in full.

Deadline reports that “The Wolf of Wall Street” will focus on Belfort’s “days as a hard-partying, drug-addicted stockbroker who was indicted in 1998 for security fraud and money laundering and served a 22-month federal prison stretch.” Are you excited to see the fruits of Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio’s latest collaboration?
