Production[edit]

Development[edit]

On March 10, 2016, Imperative Entertainment won the bidding war to make a film adaptation of David Grann's non-fiction book Killers of the Flower Moon and paid $5 million, and studio's Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas would produce the film.[3] In April 2017, it was revealed that Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro were considering making the film, adapted by Eric Roth.[4] In July 2017, production designer Dante Ferretti revealed that filming would begin in early 2018, with Scorsese directing and DiCaprio starring.[5] However, production stalled until October 2018, when it was announced that the film would be Scorsese's next effort after completing The Irishman (2019). At that point, filming was due to begin in the summer of 2019.[6]

Pre-production[edit]

In June 2019, it was announced that Paramount Pictures would distribute the film.[7] On July 26, 2019, Scorsese traveled to the Osage campus in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, to meet with Principal Chief Geoffrey Standing Bear on how the Osage Nation could help with the film's production.[8] Days later, it was reported that De Niro had joined the cast with filming tentatively set to commence in the summer of 2020.[2]

In December 2019, Scorsese's cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto confirmed that the film was expected to start principal photography in March 2020, adding that the "look and feel of the film" was still being figured out.[9] At the 26th Screen Actors Guild Awards on January 19, 2020, DiCaprio officially announced that he and De Niro will star in the film.[10] In April 2020, it was announced that the filming of Killers of the Flower Moon had been postponed indefinitely in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.[11] Meanwhile, Scorsese had reached out to Netflix and Apple TV+ for financing and distributing the film, as Paramount had concerns with the films budget reaching $200 million, Paramount was still open to a deal to serve as financier and distributor, and they should agree.[12] In May 2020, Apple TV+ was announced to co-finance and co-distribute the film, with Paramount still distributing.[13]

Filming[edit]

Killers of the Flower Moon is expected to enter its production phase in February 2021 in Oklahoma,[1] and is also set to conclude filming after a seven-month shoot.[14]
