Hollywood director Martin Scorsese is all set to collaborate again with actor Leonardo DiCaprio for The Wage, an adaptation of New Yorker journalist David Grann’s upcoming nonfiction book, The Wager: A Tale of Shipwreck, Mutiny, and Murder, for Apple.
Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio reteam for shipwreck thriller The Wager at Apple
According to Variety, The Wager, which will be published next April, tells the story of the 1700’s British naval ship of the same name. During a secret mission to obtain a Spanish treasure-filled galleon, the crew ended up shipwrecked on a desolate island off the coast of Patagonia.
Stranded and forced to survive against the elements, the crew descends into anarchy, and when they return to civilization end up on opposite sides of an intense court martial, with accusations of murder and treachery against several parties.
The upcoming thriller The Wager marks the celebrated director and the Oscar-winning actor's sixth collaboration after Gangs of New York, Aviation, The Audition, Wolf of Wall Street and their forthcoming Killer of the Flower Moon which is also an adaptation of Grann's book.
It is based on the series of 1920s Oklahoma murders in the Osage Nation, that were committed after the discovery of oil in the tribal region. The film boasts a star cast of Robert De Niro, Jesse Plemons, Lily Gladstone and Brendan Fraser in pivotal roles.
The Wager still has yet to receive a release date, but Killers of The Flower Moon has been tentatively slated for a May 2023 release. While it was expected to premiere this year, makers are keen on releasing it in 2023 by first debuting it at the Cannes or Venice Film Festival.
In addition to the two Scorsese-helmed films, Apple Studios is also in development on a limited series adaptation of Grann’s The White Darkness. Per the report, Tom Hiddleston is set to star in the series, which was developed by Pachinko showrunner Soo Hugh, who executive produces and showruns with Mark Heyman.
