Although Martin Scorsese’s latest film, Killers of the Flower Moon, has not yet been released, rumors have long been circulating online that Scorsese is already working on another project. Now the director confirms the reports. Here’s what we know about “The Wager”.
Some time ago, we reported that Martin Scorsese is reportedly already working on another project, although his “Killers of the Flower Moon” has not premiered yet. Now it turns out that the media reports we wrote about at the time are true. What’s more, in his new production, Scorsese again collaborated with the same actor who starred in “Killers of the Flower Moon”.
Martin Scorsese confirmed in an interview with The New York Times that he is working on a new film. The director also admitted that Leonardo DiCaprio again played the main role. This will be DiCaprio’s eighth time starring with Scorsese. The result of their latest collaboration is “Killers of the Flower Moon”, which will soon be released in cinemas. Their next project together will be “The Wager”.
“The Wager” is an adaptation of the book “The Wager: A Tale of Shipwreck, Mutiny and Murder” by David Grann. It will tell the story of the crew of a British Royal Navy ship that crashed off the coast of present-day Chile. The main character of the film will be the captain of the ship, David Cheap, and his problems with the crew, which began to mutiny, which led to the creation of warring factions. The story will present the events on board and the moment when the survivors were rescued and brought to court martial, where they argued among themselves and accused each other of crimes.
