‘Killers Of The Flower Moon’ Confirmed For Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Martin Scorsese's highly anticipated film project "Killers Of The Flower Moon" is set to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, according to the recent confirmation of rumours circulating since earlier this year. It is not yet known if the film will be a competitor for the prestigious Palme d'Or award.

This event marks the potential return of Scorsese as a competitor at Cannes, having won the award for Best Director for "After Hours" in 1986 and the Palme d'Or for Best Film in 1976 for "Taxi Driver." He was also a member of the jury in 1998.

The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as FBI agent Tom White, who led the investigation into the Osage Indian Nation murders in the early 1920s in Oklahoma, portrayed in the non-fiction book "Flower Moon" by David Grann. The book details the conspiracy against the Osage people, who had become wealthy from oil discovered on their land. The story explores themes of power, greed, and corruption and sheds light on a dark chapter in American history.

Scorsese and DiCaprio have a long-standing collaboration in the film industry, having worked together on several films over the years, including "Gangs of New York," "The Aviator," "The Departed," "Shutter Island," and "The Wolf of Wall Street."

The film is set to be released in the US in October, with a limited release on October 6 and a wide release on October 20. The confirmation of the film's premiere at Cannes has generated excitement among fans of Scorsese and DiCaprio, who eagerly anticipate another collaboration between the two industry legends, in addition to having confirmed the involvement of another industry legend Robert De Niro in a starring role.
