The film will be written by Terrence Winter, who is currently serving as executive producer with Scorsese on the excellent HBO series, Boardwalk Empire, which he also created. Red Granite Pictures will fully finance the film.
Scorsese and DiCaprio have previously worked together on Gangs of New York, The Aviator, the Oscar-winning The Departed and Shutter Island.
