The text “Killers of the Flower Moon” is based on David Grann’s book of the same title. The author has revealed behind the scenes the gruesome murders that took place in Oklahoma in the 1920s. The victims were Osage. The killings began after oil was discovered on the tribe’s property. The situation became so dangerous that the Federal Services got involved. Edgar Hoover was associated with the investigation and used it to build his position in the forces that would later turn into the FBI.
Author Eric Roth recently revealed in an interview that he would be “probably the last Westerner” and definitely “something we haven’t seen yet.” He also dispelled doubts about the role of Leonardo DiCaprio and Jesse Plemons – there were rumors that Plemmons would play the lead role in “Killers of the Flower Moon,” and that DiCaprio would only play a side character. Ruth said that they would both be important characters and the role of DiCaprio would be very interesting and complex – “smart role of a smart actor.”
The production budget is a staggering $ 200 million. The film was produced by Paramount and Apple in half, so after its cinematic distribution, Killers of the Flower Moon will move to AppleTV +.
