Leonardo DiCaprio, Martin Scorsese's 'Wolf of Wall Street' gets studio
Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio are taking their stock market true crime thriller The Wolf of Wall Street to Paramount Pictures, EW has confirmed. The studio has picked up the domestic distribution rights to the film, adapted from Jordan Belfort’s memoir of his time as a hard-partying trader eventually sentenced to prison for fraud and insider trading. No release date has been set yet, but Paramount is eyeing the fourth quarter of 2013, a prime awards season corridor.
The film costars Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, Kyle Chandler, Rob Reiner, Jean Dujardin, and The Walking Dead‘s Jon Bernthal. Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter penned the screenplay.
