According to the best-selling 2017 non-fiction book Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann, Killers of the Flower Moon is an upcoming American Western crime drama film that will be directed by Martin Scorsese from a script he co-wrote with Eric Roth.
The story revolves around a string of murders that took place in the Osage Nation in Oklahoma during the 1920s after oil was found there. Along with Jesse Plemons, Lily Gladstone, Brendan Fraser, John Lithgow, and Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio, who also serves as an executive producer, is a star in the movie.
Killers of the Flower Moon has been the subject of much talk for some time, but it won’t reach moviegoers’ screens until 2023, four years after Scorsese’s most recent film, The Irishman. Everything we know about Killers of the Flower Moon is listed below.
Killers of The Flower Moon Release Date
The movie will have its international premiere on May 20, 2023, at the 76th Cannes Film Festival. It will then be distributed in a limited number of theaters on October 6, 2023, before Paramount Pictures opens it to the public on October 20, 2023, in the United States.
A vague streaming release on Apple TV+ is also planned for it. Those attending the Cannes 2023 Film Festival in May will be the first to see the new Scorsese film because The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Killers of the Flower Moon will have its world premiere there.

Killers of The Flower Moon Is Based on The Book by David Grann
The newest film from director Martin Scorsese will chronicle the investigations of a series of wealthy people who were killed in Osage County, Oklahoma in the early 1920s. It is based on the nonfiction book Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, written by David Grann.
Grann is most known for writing The Lost City of Z, which served as the basis for the renowned 2017 film of the same name. Grann has a career as a journalist specializing in the pursuit of the truth by people with obsessive tendencies. It is undeniable that David Grann’s critically acclaimed Killers of the Flower Moon follows that tradition.
It Is Simple To understand how screenwriter Eric Roth (Munich) felt motivated to convey this story — even though he faced his fair share of difficulties in adapting it for the big screen. However, if the movie is as successful as the book, then it will be a further triumph for the director and the Academy Award–winning screenwriter.
